Thermodynamics Of Lattice Qcd With Two Light Quarks On A 163 × 8 Lattice. Ii
We have extended our earlier simulations of the high-temperature behavior of lattice QCD with two light flavors of staggered quarks on a 163×8 lattice to a lower quark mass (mq=0.00625). The transition from hadronic matter to a quark-gluon plasma is observed at 6/g2=5.49(2) corresponding to a temperature of Tc ≈ 140 MeV. We present measurements of observables which probe the nature of the quark-gluon plasma and serve to distinguish it from hadronic matter. Although the transition is quite abrupt, we have seen no indica-tions that it is first order. © 1997 The American Physical Society.
