IDENTIFYING MONOPOLES ON A LATTICE

Abstract:

The U(1) Villain model is simulated in three and four dimensions. We locate monopoles using both the conventional DeGrand-Toussaint prescription and the exact prescription as provided by the model itself. The two monopole gases thus obtained are compared, in particular with respect to their confining and percolation properties. In this way we investigate to how strong a coupling the conventional definition of lattice monopoles remains reliable. We show that in the interesting range of "interm...
