**ABSTRACT:**We investigated the finite temperature (T) phase transition for SU(Nc) gauge theory with Nc=4, 6, 8 and 10 at lattice spacing, a, of 1/(6T) or less. We checked that these theories have first-order transitions at such small a. In many cases we were able to find the critical couplings with precision as good as a few parts in 104. We also investigated the use of two-loop renormalization group equations in extrapolating the lattice results to the continuum, thus fixing the temperature scale in units of the phase transition temperature, Tc. We found that when aPhysical review D: Particles and fields 12/2009; 80(11). - [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

**ABSTRACT:**These lectures start with a brief overview of salient features of the critical region of hot QCD. The main emphasis is on the accurate description of static plasma observables by the well-known hierarchy of reduced actions combined with 3D simulations above T ˜ 2Tc. A striking pattern emerges, put in perspective by completing the quasi-particle picture.12/2003; - [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

**ABSTRACT:**Using the AdS/CFT correspondence, we examine the behavior of correlators of Polyakov loops and other operators in 𝒩 = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory at non-zero temperature. The implications for Debye screening in this strongly coupled non-Abelian plasma, and comparisons with available results for thermal QCD, are discussed.Journal of High Energy Physics 08/2007; 2007(08):049-049. · 6.22 Impact Factor
