There are good reasons that the deconfinement phase transition of pure Yang-Mills theory at finite temperature should also be reflected in the behavior of gauge-fixed gluonic correlation functions. Understanding this in detail would provide another important example of how physical information can be extracted from gauge-dependent correlations, which is not always obvious. Therefore, herein we study the behavior of the Landau-gauge gluon propagator of pure $SU(2)$ across the phase transition in… 
Perturbative aspects of the deconfinement transition -- Physics beyond the Faddeev-Popov model
In the case of non-abelian gauge theories, the standard Faddeev-Popov (FP) gauge-fixing procedure in the Landau gauge is known to be incomplete due to the presence of gauge-equivalent field
Exploring the Tan contact term in Yang-Mills theory
Reliably computing the free energy in a gauge theory like QCD is a challenging and resource-demanding endeavor. We explore the possibility to obtain the associated thermodynamic anomaly from
A novel background field approach to the confinement-deconfinement transition
We propose a novel approach to the confinement-deconfinement transition in Yang-Mills theories in the context of gauge-fixed calculations. The method is based on a background-field generalisation of
The 〈A2〉 asymmetry and longitudinal propagator in lattice SU(2) gluodynamics at T ≃ Tc
We study numerically the chromoelectric–chromomagnetic asymmetry of the dimension two gluon condensate and the longitudinal gluon propagator at [Formula: see text] in the Landau-gauge [Formula: see
Finite-density gauge correlation functions in QC2D
2-color QCD is the simplest QCD-like theory which is accessible to lattice simulations at finite density. It therefore plays an important role to test qualitative features and to provide benchmarks
Nonperturbative finite-temperature Yang-Mills theory
We present non-perturbative correlation functions in Landau-gauge Yang-Mills theory at finite temperature. The results are obtained from the functional renormalisation group within a self-consistent

We report results on the quark spectral function in the Landau gauge at finite temperature determined from its Dyson-Schwinger equation. Compared to earlier quenched results this study encompasses


Landau gauge gluon and ghost propagators at finite temperature from quenched lattice QCD
The behavior of the Landau gauge gluon and ghost propagators is studied in pure SU(3) gauge theory at non-zero temperature on the lattice. We concentrate on the momentum range [0.6, 2.0] GeV. For the
Infrared properties of propagators in Landau-gauge pure Yang-Mills theory at finite temperature
The finite-temperature behavior of gluon and Faddeev-Popov-ghost propagators is investigated for pure $SU(2)$ Yang-Mills theory in Landau gauge. We present nonperturbative results, obtained using
Chiral and deconfinement transition from correlation functions: SU(2) vs. SU(3)
We study a gauge-invariant order parameter for deconfinement and the chiral condensate in SU(2) and SU(3) Yang–Mills theory in the vicinity of the deconfinement phase transition using the Landau

Abstract.The properties of the high-temperature phase of Yang-Mills theory in Landau gauge are investigated by extending an earlier study on the infinite-temperature limit to finite temperatures. To

Green’s functions are a central element in the attempt to understand non-perturbative phenomena in Yang-Mills theory. Besides the propagators, 3-point Green’s functions play a significant role, since
