Some Effects of the Anisotropy in a Simple Lattice Gauge Model at Finite Temperature
Abstract: Critical properties of QCD at finite temperature and density in the approximation SU(N)\simeq Z(N) are studied analytically. Monte Carlo simulations are carried out on the (3+1)-dimensional Z(2) anisotropic lattice model, and a new method to simulate extremely anisotropic lattice systems with discrete symmetries is proposed. Dependence of the temporal and spatial average plaquette, Wilson loops, correlation functions on the anisotropy parameter is presented. Asymptotic behavior of thermodynamic quantities in this model is discussed.
