    Geometry of percolating monopole clusters

    Get PDF
    We perform detailed measurements of the geometrical characteristics of the percolating cluster of the magnetic monopole currents in the confining phase of the lattice SU(2) gluodynamics. The Maximal Abelian projection is used to define the monopoles. The use of the geometrical language is motivated by recent observations that the full non-Abelian action associated with the monopoles corresponds to point-like particles on the currently available lattices. Scaling behavior of various quantities is observed.Comment: 3 pages, 4 figures, Lattice2002(topology

    Interplay of Monopoles and P-Vortices

    Full text link
    We show that P-Vortices in the confinement phase of SU(2) lattice gauge theory form one large percolating (infrared) cluster and a number of small (ultraviolet) clusters. We discuss the interrelation of clusters of monopoles in the maximal Abelian projection with clusters of P-vortices. To extract P-vortices we use both direct and indirect central projections and find qualitatively similar results.Comment: 3 pages, 4 figures; talk given at Lattice 2003 (Tsukuba, Japan

    Flux Tubes of Two- and Three-Quark System in Full QCD

    Get PDF
    We study the abelian color flux of two- and three-quark systems in the maximally abelian gauge in lattice QCD with dynamical fermions. We find that the abelian flux tube formed between quark and antiquark is very much the same as in quenched QCD up to quark separations of RR∌\sim 2fm. The profile of the color electric field in three-quark system suggests YY ansatz, which might be interpreted as the result of the vacuum pressure in the confined phase. In order to clarify the flux structure, we investigate the color electric field of the three-quark system splittting the abelian gauge field into the monopole and photon parts.Comment: 4 pages, 4 figures, Talk given at XVI International Conference on Particles and Nuclei (PaNic02),Osaka, Japan, Sep.30 - Oct.4, 200

    Lattice chiral fermions in the background of non-trivial topology

    Get PDF
    We address the problem of numerical simulations in the background non-trivial topology in the chiral Schwinger model. An effective fermionic action is derived which is in accord with established analytical results, and which satisfies the anomaly equation. We describe a numerical evaluation of baryon number violating amplitudes, specifically the 't Hooft vertex.Comment: LATTICE99(Chiral Gauge Theories

    Center Dominance Recovered: Direct Laplacian Center Gauge

    Get PDF
    We introduce a variation of direct maximal center gauge fixing: the "direct Laplacian" center gauge. The new procedure consists of first fixing to the Laplacian adjoint Landau gauge, followed by overrelaxation to the nearby Gribov copy of the direct maximal center gauge. Certain shortcomings of maximal center gauge, associated with Gribov copies, are overcome in the new gauge, in particular center dominance is recovered.Comment: 3 pages, 2 EPS figures, Lattice2001(confinement

    First-Order Signals in Compact QED with Monopole Suppressed Boundaries

    Get PDF
    Pure gauge compact QED on hypercubic lattices is considered with periodically closed monopole currents suppressed. We compute observables on sublattices which are nested around the centre of the lattice in order to locate regions where translation symmetry is approximately recovered. Our Monte Carlo simulations on 24424^4-lattices give indications for a first-order nature of the U(1) phase transition.Comment: 3 pages, uuencoded Z-compressed .tar file, to appear in proceedings of lattice 9

    Confining string and P-vortices in the indirect Z(2) projection of SU(2) lattice gauge theory

    Get PDF
    We study the distribution of P-vortices near the confining string in the indirect Z(2) projection of SU(2) lattice gauge theory. It occurs that the density of vortices is constant at large distances and strongly suppressed near the line connecting the test quark-antiquark pair. This means that the condensate of P-vortices is broken inside the confining string. We also find that the width of the P-vortex density distribution is proportional to the logarithm of the distance between the quark and antiquark.Comment: 3 pages, 4 figures, Lattice2002(topology), 2 references added, minor change
