  • We report on lattice simulations of 16 supercharge SU(N) Yang-Mills quantum mechanics in the 't Hooft limit. Maldacena duality conjectures that in this limit the theory is dual to IIA string theory, and, in particular, that the behavior of the thermal theory at low temperature is equivalent to that of certain black holes in IIA supergravity. Our simulations probe the low temperature regime for N{<=}5 and the intermediate and high temperature regimes for N{<=}12. We observe 't Hooft scaling, and at low temperatures our results are consistent with the dual black hole prediction. The intermediate temperature range is dual tomore » the Horowitz-Polchinski correspondence region, and our results are consistent with continuous behavior there. We include the Pfaffian phase arising from the fermions in our calculations where appropriate.« less
  • In this work the SU(2) Yang--Mills equations are studied in compactified Minkowski space. The manifold is identified with that of the Lie group U(1) x SU(2) and a classification is made of all SU(2) principal bundles over this base space in terms of homotopy classes of mappings f:S/sup 3/..-->..S/sup 3/. Invariance of gauge fields under transformation groups is defined in terms of bundle mappings and the case of invariance under SU(2) translations is shown to imply a trivial bundle structure. All solutions to the field equations invariant under U(1) x SU(2) translations are obtained as well as all (anti-) self-dualmore » solutions invariant under SU(2) translations.« less
  • We study fluctuation modes in ten-dimensional Yang-Mills theory with a higher derivative term for the gauge field. We consider the ten-dimensional space-time to be a product of a four-dimensional space-time and six-dimensional sphere which exhibits dynamical compactification. Because of the isometry on S{sup 6}, there are flat directions corresponding to the Nambu-Goldstone zero modes in the effective theory on the solution. The zero modes are absorbed into gauge fields and form massive vector fields as a consequence of the Higgs-Kibble mechanism. The mass of the vector fields is proportional to the inverse of the radius of the sphere and largermore » than the mass scale set by the radius because of the higher derivative term.« less
  • We investigate the Wightman function, the vacuum expectation values of the field squared, and the energy-momentum tensor for a scalar field with a general curvature coupling parameter in (D+1)-dimensional de Sitter (dS) spacetime with an arbitrary number of compactified spatial dimensions. Both cases of periodicity and antiperiodicity conditions along the compactified dimensions are considered. Recurrence formulas are derived which express the vacuum expectation values for the dS spacetime of topology R{sup p}x(S{sup 1}){sup q} in the form of the sum of the vacuum expectation values in the topology R{sup p+1}x(S{sup 1}){sup q-1} and the part induced by the compactness ofmore » the (p+1)th spatial dimension. The behavior of the topological parts is investigated in various asymptotic regions of the parameters. In the early stages of the cosmological evolution, the topological parts dominate the contribution in the expectation values due to the uncompactified dS part. In this limit the behavior of the topological parts does not depend on the curvature coupling parameter and coincides with that for a conformally coupled massless field. At late stages of the cosmological expansion, the expectation values are dominated by the part corresponding to uncompactified dS spacetime. The vanishing of the topological parts is monotonic or oscillatory in dependence of the mass and the curvature coupling parameter of the field.« less
