Non-Abelian Gauge Theories in “Intermediate” Volumes

  • Bernd A. Berg
Conference paper


Recent analytical and numerical studies give a consistent picture of non-Abelian gauge theory in medium-sized volumes. I give an overview of the results. In case of the SU(2) deconfining temperature analytical methods seem to allow an estimate that is relevant for the infinite volume limit.
