LARGE N AND CONFINING FLUX TUBES AS STRINGS - A VIEW FROM THE LATTICE

Abstract:

I begin this paper by describing some of the useful things that we have learned about large-N gauge theories using lattice simulations. For example that the theory is confining in that limit, that for many quantities SU(3) ≃ SU(∞), and that this includes the strongly coupled gluon plasma just above T c, thus providing some justification for the use of gauge-gravity duality in analysing QCD at RHIC/LHC temperatures. I then turn, in a more detailed discussion, to recent ...
