Partitionfunction zeros and the SU(3) deconfining phase transition
Abstract
Using new methods to analyze Monte Carlo data, we have calculated the leading partitionfunction zero for Su(3) lattice gauge theory on various {ital L}{sub {ital t}}{ital L}{sup 3} lattices. For {ital L}{sub {ital t}}=4 lattices we find in the range {ital L}=416 the scaling behavior of a secondorder transition with {nu}=0.468(6). However, for larger lattices ({ital L}=1424), the scaling behavior is consistent with a firstorder transition: {nu}=0.35(2). The firstorder nature of the transition is further substantiated by the fact that the finitesize scaling analysis of the specific heat yields a nonvanishing infinitevolume latent heat.
