Scaling Studies of QCD on Asymmetric Lattices
Using the deconfinement temperature as a probe, the scaling properties of QCD are studied on asymmetric lattices. We find that the measured asymmetry dependence of the lattice Λ parameter at β ≈ 5.7 agrees precisely with that predicted by one loop perturbation theory. This result holds on lattices with asymmetry in one spatial direction and on lattices with asymmetry in all three spatial directions and suggests that the perturbative scaling violations observed on symmetric lattices at these values of β are independent of asymmetry and therefore unlikely to be lattice artifacts.
