Remarks on Alternative Lattice Actions and Phase Structure of Lattice Models

  • Harald Grosse
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (volume 82)


We state the requirements of lattice gauge theories, remark that Manton’s action violates reflection positivity, mention the equivalence of Z4 and Z2 × Z2 theories and discuss how well the SU(3) gauge theory is approximated by taking nonabelian subgroups as a gauge group.
