## Infrared behavior of gluon and ghost propagators from asymmetric lattices

We present a numerical study of the lattice Landau gluon and ghost propagators in three-dimensional pure SU(2) gauge theory. Data have been obtained using asymmetric lattices (V=20{sup 2}x40, 20{sup 2}x60, 8{sup 2}x64, 8{sup 2}x140, 12{sup 2}x140, and 16{sup 2}x140) for the lattice coupling {beta}=3.4 in the scaling region. We find that the gluon (respectively, ghost) propagator is suppressed (respectively, enhanced) at small momenta in the limit of large lattice volume V. By comparing these results with data obtained using symmetric lattices (V=20{sup 2},60{sup 3},and140{sup 3}), we find that both propagators suffer from systematic effects in the infrared region (p <more »
