Vortices and confinement in hot and cold D=2+1 gauge theories

Abstract:

We calculate the variation with temperature of the vortex free energy in D = 2 + 1 SU(2) lattice gauge theories. We do so both above and below the deconfining transition at T = T c. We find that this quantity is zero at all T for large enough volumes. For T < T c this observation is consistent with the fact that the phase is linearly confining; while for T > T c it is consistent with the conventional expectation of ...
