  journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory},
The Wilson discretization of the dimensionally reduced supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory is constructed. This gives a lattice version of the matrix model of M-theory. An SU(2) model is studied numerically in the quenched approximation for D=4. The system shows canonical scaling in the continuum limit. A clear signal for a prototype of the "black hole to strings" phase transition is found. The pseudocritical temperature is determined and the temperature dependence of the total size of the system…

Phase structure of matrix quantum mechanics at finite temperature

We study matrix quantum mechanics at finite temperature by Monte Carlo simulation. The model is obtained by dimensionally reducing 10d U(N) pure Yang-Mills theory to 1d. Following Aharony et al., one

Nonperturbative aspects of supersymmetric quantum field theories in low dimensions

Simulations of supersymmetric field theories on the lattice with (spontaneously) broken supersymmetry suffer from a fermion sign problem related to the vanishing of the Witten index. We propose a

Non-lattice simulation of supersymmetric gauge theories as a probe to quantum black holes and strings

In the past decade we have witnessed remarkable developments in the gauge-gravity duality, which suggested a new approach to superstring theory and quantum space-time. In this context it is important

Black hole thermodynamics from calculations in strongly coupled gauge theory.

An approximation scheme for the quantum mechanics of N D0-branes at finite temperature in the 't Hooft large- N limit is developed and provides a model for the density matrix which describes a black hole in the strongly coupled quantum mechanics.

Monte Carlo studies of the IIB matrix model at large N

The low-energy effective theory of the IIB matrix model developed by H. Aoki et al. is written down explicitly in terms of bosonic variables only. The effective theory is then studied by Monte Carlo

The origin of space-time as seen from matrix model simulations

The AdS/CFT correspondence, or more generally the gauge/gravity duality, is a remarkable conjecture obtained from superstring theory with various D-brane backgrounds. According to this conjecture, a

Nonperturbative studies of supersymmetric matrix quantum mechanics with 4 and 8 supercharges at finite temperature

We investigate thermodynamic properties of one-dimensional U(N) supersymmetric gauge theories with 4 and 8 supercharges in the planar large-N limit by Monte Carlo calculations. Unlike the 16

D=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills quantum mechanics with three colors

The spectrum of the $D=4$ supersymmetric Yang-Mills quantum mechanics with $SU(3)$ gauge group symmetry is computed in different channels with definite total angular momentum and the total number of

Gaussian and Mean Field Approximations for Reduced Yang-Mills Integrals

In this paper, we consider bosonic reduced Yang-Mills integrals by using some approximation schemes, which are a kind of mean field approximation called Gaussian approximation and its improved

Lattice Simulations of 10d Yang-Mills toroidally compactified to 1d, 2d and 4d

Toroidally compactified Yang-Mills theory on the lattice is studied by using the Hybrid Monte Carlo algorithm. When the compact dimensions are small, the theory naturally reduces to Yang-Mills with
