SHORT-TIME RELAXATION OF SU(2) LATTICE GAUGE THEORY IN (3 + 1) DIMENSIONS
International Journal of Modern Physics C
We investigate the dynamic relaxation for SU(2) gauge theory at finite temperatures in (3+1) dimensions. Using the Hybrid Monte Carlo algorithm, we examine the time dependence of the system in the short-time regime. Starting from the ordered state, the critical exponents beta, nu and z are calculated from the power law behaviour of the Polyakov loop and the cumulant at or near the critical point. The results for the static exponents are in agreement with those obtained from simulations in
... brium and those of the three-dimensional Ising model. The value for the dynamic critical exponent was determined with z=2.0(1).
