Abstract

We calculate the glueball mass spectrum in theSU (3) lattice regularized gauge theory. We find fourlight glueballs: the 0++, 2++, 0−+ and, most interestingly from the experimental point of view, the oddball 1−+. We calculate the 0++ and 2++ masses over a range of β values and find thatboth states conform to continuum renormalization group behaviour to a very significant degree. The question of metastable states and temperature is addressed in detail. Finally we discuss and resolve contrary claims in the recent literature.
