Nuclear Physics & RIKEN Theory Seminar

"Deconfinement in Yang-Mills theory through toroidal"

Presented by Mithat Unsal, Stanford University

Friday, December 10, 2010, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

We introduce field theory techniques through which the
deconfinement transition of four-dimensional Yang-Mills theory
can be moved to a semi-classical domain where it becomes calculable
using two-dimensional field theory. The two dimensional theory
has electric and magnetic (order and disorder) perturbations, analogs
of which appear in planar spin-systems and statistical physics.
In this regime, the deconfinement transition is driven by the
competition between electric and magnetic perturbations.
