Abstract The standard U ( N ) and S U ( N ) integrals are calculated in the large N limit. Our main finding is that for an important class of integrals this limit is different for two groups. We describe the critical behaviour of S U ( N ) models and discuss implications of our results for the large N behaviour of S U ( N ) lattice gauge theories at finite temperatures and non-zero baryon chemical potential. The key ingredients of our approach are 1) expansion of the integrals into a sum over…

Polyakov loop models in the large N limit: Phase diagram at finite density
The ’t Hooft-Veneziano limit of various U(N) and SU(N) Polyakov loop models is constructed at finite temperature and non-zero baryon chemical potential. In this paper we calculate the free energy,
Strong coupling methods in QCD thermodynamics
For a long time, strong coupling expansions have not been applied systematically in lattice QCD thermodynamics, in view of the success of numerical Monte Carlo studies. The persistent sign problem at
Polyakov loop eigenvalues in the presence of baryon chemical potential
The eigenvalues of the Polyakov loop are calculated in the strong coupled lattice QCD at finite tempera­ ture. This is done both in the pure gauge theory and in the theory with heavy quarks at finite


1/N expansion in two‐dimensional lattice gauge theory
We use the method of orthonormal polynomials to investigate the large N limit of the two‐dimensional lattice gauge theory. The 1/N2 and 1/N4 corrections to the vacuum energy and the expectation value
The weak coupling phase of lattice spin and gauge models
We analyze the lattice weak-coupling (w.c.) expansion of O(N), CPN−1 and chiral spin models, and of large-N reduced chiral and gauge models. We find that the w.c. expansion always agrees with mean
Chiral models: Their implication for gauge theories and large N
Abstract Two-dimensional chiral models are investigated from a strong coupling viewpoint, with the ultimate objective of understanding the phase structure of gauge theories. Predictions for the
Phase transitions in U(N) and SU(N) lattice gauge theories
Abstract The transition regions between strong and weak coupling for U(N) and SU(N) lattice gauge theories (2 ⩽ N ⩽ 6) are investigated with the mean field approximation including gaussian
Approaching the large-N limit: A renormalization group approach to large-N field theories
Abstract A technique is developed for finding recursive solutions to field theories that take values in SU( N ). The approach can be used as a method of solving the large- N limit as well as
Possible Third Order Phase Transition in the Large N Lattice Gauge Theory
The large-$N$ limit of the two-dimensional $\mathrm{U}(N)$ (Wilson) lattice gauge theory is explicitly evaluated for all fixed $\ensuremath{\lambda}={g}^{2}N$ by steepest-descent methods. The
The external field problem for QCD
In lattice gauge theory, many computations such as the strong coupling expansions, mean field theory, or the few plaquette models require the evaluation of the one-link integral in the presence of an
The external field problem in the large N limit of QCD
Abstract Several problems in lattice gauge theories such as mean field theory or the few plaquette problem lead to the evaluation of the properties of one link in an external matrix source. This
Improved mean field studies of SU(N) chiral models and comparison with numerical simulations
Abstract SU( N ) × SU( N ) matrix models are investigated using a systematic expansion around the classical mean field result. One-loop corrections for N = 2−5, and ∞ are computed for the two-,
N = ∞ phase transition in a class of exactly soluble model lattice gauge theories
Abstract An exactly soluble class of model U ( N ) lattice gauge theories is considered. The ground state is discussed as a separable N -fermion problem solved by mathieu functions. Some exact
