Title: Deconfining transition of SU(3) gauge theory on N sub t =4 and 6 lattices

Abstract

We report the results of a Monte Carlo study of finite-temperature pure SU(3) gauge theory performed on the parallel computer QCDPAX. The deconfining transition is studied on 12{sup 2}{times}24{times}4, 24{sup 2}{times}36{times}4, 24{sup 3}{times}6, and 36{sup 2}{times}48{times}6 lattices with 480 000--1 112 000 iterations. A clear two-phase structure is observed on spatially large (24{sup 2}{times}36{times}4 and 36{sup 2}{times}48{times}6) lattices and the gaps of physical quantities at the transition are calculated on these lattices. The latent heat thus obtained on the {ital N}{sub {ital t}}=6 (36{sup 2}{times}48{times}6) lattice is much smaller than the one previously obtained.
