SO(N) gauge theories in 2+1 dimensions

Abstract:

We calculate the string tensions, mass spectrum, and deconfining temperatures of SO(N) gauge theories in 2+1 dimensions. After a review of lattice field theory, we describe how we simulate the corresponding lattice gauge theories, construct operators to project on to specific states, and extrapolate values to the continuum limit. We discuss how to avoid possible complications such as finite size corrections and the bulk transition.

SO(N) gauge theories have become r...
