# Topological insights in many-flavor QCD on the lattice

## Abstract

The LatKMI Collaboration discusses the topological insights in many-flavor QCD on the lattice. We explore walking/conformal/confining phase in N _{f}=4,8 and 12 (in particular N _{f}=8) lattice QCD via the topological charge and susceptibility, eigenvalues and anomalous dimension.
