room Virtual
abstract:

The D0-brane matrix model (the BFSS matrix model and the BMN matrix model) can describe various objects including type IIA black zero-brane, M-theory black hole, M2-branes and M5-branes. We study this theory from several different angles. We put the emphasis on the importance of the dynamics of eigenvalues of matrices, and more generally, color degrees of freedom. Furthermore we explain how the Euclidean theory can be studied by using the Monte Carlo method, and discuss the future directions. If you have a good idea we can test it on computer together!

Color Confinement and Bose-Einstein condensation (please email p.agarwal AT qmul.ac.uk for a link to the zoom meeting))

room Zoom
abstract:

We propose a unified description of two important phenomena: color confinement in large-N gauge theory, and Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC). We focus on the confinement/deconfinement transition characterized by the increase of the entropy from N^0 to N^2, which persists in the weak coupling region. Indistinguishability associated with the symmetry group --- SU(N) or O(N) in gauge theory, and S_N permutations in the system of identical bosons --- is crucial for the formation of the condensed (confined) phase. We relate standard criteria, based on off-diagonal long range order (ODLRO) for BEC and the Polyakov loop for gauge theory. The constant offset of the distribution of the phases of the Polyakov loop corresponds to ODLRO, and gives the order parameter for the partially-(de)confined phase at finite coupling. Furthermore we show the numerical evidence for this phenomenon at strong coupling, by using the Yang-Mills matrix model as a concrete example and solving it numerical via lattice simulation. This talk is based on a series of papers, especially "Color Confinement and Bose-Einstein Condensation" by Hanada, Shimada and Wintergerst, 2001.10459 [hep-th] and "Partial Deconfinement at Strong Coupling on a Lattice' by Bergner, Bodendorfer, Funai, Hanada, Rinaldi, Schaefer, Vranas and Watanabe to appear (should be in hep-th by the talk).

Color Confinement, Bose-Einstein Condensation and Holographic Emergent Space

Regular Seminar Masanori Hanada (Southampton U.)

abstract:

We propose a unified description of two important phenomena: color confinement in large-$N$ gauge theory, and Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC). The key lies in relating standard criteria, based on off-diagonal long range order (ODLRO) for BEC and the Polyakov loop for gauge theory: the constant offset of the distribution of the phases of the Polyakov loop corresponds to ODLRO. Indistinguishability associated with the symmetry group --- SU(N) or O(N) in gauge theory, and S_N permutations in the system of identical bosons --- is crucial in either case. This viewpoint may have implications for confinement at finite N, and for quantum gravity via gauge/gravity duality. As a byproduct, we obtain a characterization of the partially-confined/partially-deconfined phase at finite coupling: the constant offset of the distribution of the phases of the Polyakov loop is the order parameter.
