Phase structure study of SU(2) lattice gauge theory with 8 flavours
In this talk, I would like to present the phase structure of SU(2) lattice gauge theory with 8 flavours(staggered fermions) in fundamental representation. Average plaquette and Polyakov loop are measured and one phase transition is observed. To identify the order of this confining-deconfining phase transition, we resort to the study of cold & hot-start simulations for plaquette. Moreover, studies of APE smearing, autocorrelation time, effective potential, and susceptibility are further done for Polyakov loop. Finally, I would show results of some zero mass simulations as a starting point to study the chiral condensate, being the order parameter for spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking. Moreover, some future works will be mentioned.
