# The Gluon propagator close to criticality

@article{Maas2012TheGP, title={The Gluon propagator close to criticality}, author={Axel Maas and Jan M. Pawlowski and Lorenz von Smekal and Daniel Spielmann}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2012}, volume={85}, pages={034037} }

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…
