Z(N) Gauge Theories - Phase Transitions and Confinement

  • S. Yankielowicz
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 55)

Abstract

The subject discussed in these lectures is Z(N) lattice gauge theories. The first two questions that come to mind are:
  1. i)

    Why at all are we interested in Z(N) gauge theories?

     
  2. ii)

    Why do we use the lattice formulation?

     

Keywords

Gauge Theory Partition Function Wilson Loop Continuum Limit Flux Tube 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
