# The lattice infrared Landau gauge gluon propagator: the infinite volume limit

@article{Oliveira2009TheLI, title={The lattice infrared Landau gauge gluon propagator: the infinite volume limit}, author={Orlando Oliveira and P. J. Silva}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Lattice}, year={2009} }

We report on the infrared behaviour of the lattice gluon propagator. The bounds on D(0) and their behaviour with the lattice volume are investigated, together with the full propagator. Moreover, a study of the gluon propagator using different lattice spacings is carried out.
