It is a long-standing question whether the confinement of matter fields in QCD has an imprint in the (gauge-dependent) correlation functions, especially the propagators. As the analytic structure plays an important role in this question, high-precision data is necessary for lattice investigations. Also, it is interesting how this depends on the dimensionality of the theory. To make a study over a wide range of parameters possible this suggests to use scalar particles. This is done here: The…
