@article{Lin2012LatticeSO, title={Lattice study of infrared behaviour in SU(3) gauge theory with twelve massless flavours}, author={C.-J. David Lin and K. Ogawa and Hiroshi Ohki and Eigo Shintani}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2012}, volume={2012}, pages={1-37} }

A bstractWe present details of a lattice study of infrared behaviour in SU(3) gauge theory with twelve massless fermions in the fundamental representation. Using the step-scaling method, we compute the coupling constant in this theory over a large range of scale. The renormalisation scheme in this work is defined by the ratio of Polyakov loop correlators in the directions with different boundary conditions. We closely examine systematic effects, and find that they are dominated by errors… Expand
