Title: Graviton propagators in supergravity and noncommutative gauge theory

Abstract

We investigate the graviton propagator in the type IIB supergravity background which is dual to 4 dimensional noncommutative gauge theory. We assume that the boundary is located not at the infinity but at the noncommutative scale where the string frame metric exhibits the maximum. We argue that the Neumann boundary condition is the appropriate boundary condition to be adopted at the boundary. We find that the graviton propagator behaves just as that of the 4 dimensional massless graviton. On the other hand, the nonanalytic behaviors of the other Kaluza-Klein modes are not significantly affected by the Neumann boundary condition.

  • We first study the temporal Wilson loop in the finite-temperature noncommutative dipole field theory from the string/gauge correspondence. The associated dual supergravity background is constructed from the near-horizon geometry of near-extremal D branes, after applying T duality and smeared twist. We investigate the string configuration therein and find that while the temperature produces a maximum distance L{sub max} in the interquark distance the dipole in there could produce a minimum distance L{sub min}. The quark boundary pair therefore could be found only if their distance is between L{sub min} and L{sub max}. We also show that, beyond a critical temperaturemore » the quark pair becomes totally free due to screening by thermal bath. We next study the spatial Wilson loop and find the confining nature in the zero temperature 3D and 4D nonsupersymmetry dipole gauge theory. The string tension of the linear confinement potential is obtained and found to be a decreasing function of the dipole field. We also investigate the associated t'Hooft loop and determine the corresponding monopole antimonopole potential. The conventional screening of magnetic charge which indicates the confinement of the electric charge is replaced by a strong repulsive however. Finally, we show that the dual string which is rotating along the dipole deformed S{sup 5} will behave as a static one without dipole field, which has no minimum distance and has larger energy than a static one with dipole field. We discuss the phase transition between these string solutions.« less
  • A thorough study of 4-dimensional SU(2) Yang-Mills theory in Coulomb gauge is performed using large scale lattice simulations. The (equal-time) transverse gluon propagator, the ghost form factor d(p) and the Coulomb potential V{sub coul}(p){proportional_to}d{sup 2}(p)f(p)/p{sup 2} are calculated. For large momenta p, the gluon propagator decreases like 1/p{sup 1+{eta}} with {eta}=0.5(1). At low momentum, the propagator is weakly momentum dependent. The small momentum behavior of the Coulomb potential is consistent with linear confinement. We find that the inequality {sigma}{sub coul}{>=}{sigma} is satisfied. Finally, we provide evidence that the ghost form factors d(p) and f(p) acquire IR singularities, i.e., d(p){proportional_to}1/{radical}(p) andmore » f(p){proportional_to}1/p, respectively. It turns out that the combination g{sub 0}{sup 2}d{sub 0}(p) of the bare gauge coupling g{sub 0} and the bare ghost form factor d{sub 0}(p) is finite and therefore renormalization group invariant.« less
  • We reinvestigate the problem of Gribov ambiguities within the Landau (or Lorentz) gauge for the ghost and gluon propagators in pure SU(2) lattice gauge theory. We make use of the full symmetry group of the action taking into account large, i.e. nonperiodic, Z(2) gauge transformations leaving lattice plaquettes invariant. Enlarging in this way the gauge orbits for any given gauge field configuration the Landau gauge can be fixed at higher local extrema of the gauge functional in comparison with standard (overrelaxation) techniques. This has a clearly visible effect not only for the ghost propagator at small momenta but also formore » the gluon propagator, in contrast to the common belief.« less
  • A projective multigrid method is considered for application to fermion propagators in the presence of gauge fields. The collective variables on each block are defined by the gauge-invariant projection onto the lowest eigenstate for the block. The scheme is formulated in detail for two-dimensional bosons and Wilson fermions in the U(1) gauge theory and numerical studies are presented for bosons to demonstrate its potential for more efficient convergence. For example, at a confinement length of 8 lattice units on a 64{times}64 lattice, the projective multigrid method gives a speed up of almost two orders of magnitude relative to the Gauss-Seidelmore » algorithm.« less
  • The effects of the Gribov copies on the gluon and ghost propagators are investigated in SU(2) Euclidean Yang-Mills theory quantized in the maximal Abelian gauge. The diagonal component of the gluon propagator displays the characteristic Gribov-type behavior. The off-diagonal component of the gluon propagator is found to be of the Yukawa type, with a dynamical mass originating from the dimension two condensate <A{sub {mu}}{sup a}A{sub {mu}}{sup a}>, which is also taken into account. Finally, the off-diagonal ghost propagator exhibits infrared enhancement.
