A study of the 't Hooft loop in SU(2) Yang-Mills theory

By Ph. de Forcrand, M. D'Elia and M. Pepe

Abstract

We study the behaviour of the spatial and temporal 't Hooft loop at zero and finite temperature in the 4D SU(2) Yang-Mills theory, using a new numerical method. In the deconfined phase $T>T_c$, the spatial 't Hooft loop exhibits a dual string tension, which vanishes at $T_c$ with 3D Ising-like critical exponent
