Search for continuous phase transitions in 5D pure SU(2) lattice gauge theory
May 16, 2022
The Renormalization Group (RG) is one of the central and modern techniques
in quantum field theory. Indeed, quantum field theories can be understood
as flows between fixed points of the RG flow, which represent Conformal Field Theories
(CFT's). Hence, the search and classification of yet unknown
non-trivial CFT's is a legitimate endeavor. Analytical considerations
point to the existence of such a fixed point in pure SU(2) Yang-Mills
fields in 5D. This issue has already been addressed, although inconclusively.
We search for this putative fixed point using lattice Monte Carlo methods. An extended discussion can be found in .

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
