  • The pressure and the energy density of the SU(3) gauge theory are calculated on lattices with temporal extent N-tau = 4, 6 and 8 and spatial extent N-sigma = 16 and 32. The results are then extrapolated to the continuum limit. In the investigated temperature range up to five times T-c we observe a 15% deviation from the ideal gas limit. We also present new results for the critical temperature on lattices with temporal extent N, = 8 and 12. At the corresponding critical couplings the string… CONTINUE READING
