# The glueball spectrum of SU(3) gauge theory in 3 + 1 dimensions

@article{Athenodorou2020TheGS, title={The glueball spectrum of SU(3) gauge theory in 3 + 1 dimensions}, author={Andreas Athenodorou and M. Teper}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Lattice}, year={2020} }

We calculate the low-lying glueball spectrum of the SU(3) lattice gauge theory in 3+1 dimensions for the range of beta up to beta=6.50 using the standard plaquette action. We do so for states in all the representations R of the cubic rotation group, and for both values of parity P and charge conjugation C. We extrapolate these results to the continuum limit of the theory using the confining string tension as our energy scale. We also present our results in units of the r0 scale and, from that…
