The Relationship of the Laplacian Gauge to the Landau Gauge

By Jeffrey E. Mandula


The Laplacian gauge for gauge group SU(N) is discussed in perturbation theory. It is shown that to the lowest non-trivial order, O(g^1), configurations in the Laplacian gauge automatically satisfy the (finite difference) Landau gauge condition. Laplacian gauge fixed configurations are examined numerically and it is seen that to O(g^2) they do not remain in the Landau gauge.Comment: 3 pages; postscript only; LATTICE2001(Theoretical Developments
