Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We employ Monte Carlo methods to study SU(2) Yang-Mills theory in the absence of fermions, on a lattice, at finite temperature. We determine the temperature at which a second-order transition takes place between confined and unconfined phases, in terms of the string tension.
