Confinement in large N gauge theories    [PDF]

Antonio González-Arroyo, Masanori Okawa
We report some recent results obtained for large N gauge theories which support the idea of volume reduction. Results for the string tension of the Twisted Eguchi-Kawai model match with those obtained from extrapolation from finite N. Determination of other observables is currently under way. Application of the twisted reduction idea to the case of 1 or 2 flavours of quarks in the adjoint representation of the group offers promising results. Preliminary results for the string tension point towards a very different behaviour for 1 and 2 flavours. While the string tension remains finite for 1 flavour at the critical massless quark limit, it seems to vanish with a large anomalous dimension for the $N_f=2$ case. This is consistent with the predicted Infrared fixed point expected in the latter case.
