Abstract

We compute the Euclidean correlators of the energy-momentum tensor in Yang-Mills theory at
finite temperature at zero and finite spatial momenta with lattice simulations. We perform continuum
extrapolations of these quantities using $N_{\tau}$ = 10,12,16 lattices. We use these correlators to
estimate the shear viscosity of the gluon plasma in the deconfined phase
