Volume independence in large Nc QCD-like gauge theories

Abstract

Volume independence in large Nc gauge theories may be viewed as a generalized orbifold equivalence. The reduction to zero volume (or Eguchi-Kawai reduction) is a special case of this equivalence. So is temperature independence in confining phases. A natural generalization concerns volume independence in “theory space” of quiver gauge theories. In pure Yang… (More)
