Title: The Polarization Tensor of the Massless Mode in Yang-Mills Thermodynamics

Abstract

We discuss the constraints on energy-momentum transfers in local vertices in the effective theory for the deconfining phase of SU(2) Yang-Mills thermodynamics. Subsequently, we apply these constraints to the computation of the polarization tensor of the massless mode on the one-loop level. The resulting gap equation for the sought-after screening function is solved numerically. We discuss and interpret our results.
