SU3 Deconfining Phase Transition in a Box with Cold Boundaries

Presenter: Bernd Berg — Florida State University

Bernd A. Berg and Alexei Bazavov

Deconfined regions created in heavy ion collisions are bordered by the confined phase. We discuss boundary conditions (BCs) to model a cold exterior. Monte Carlo (MC) simulations of pure SU(3) LGT with thus inspired BCs show scaling. Corrections to usual results survive in the finite volume continuum limit and we estimate them in a range from L=5−10 fermi as function of the volume size L3. In magnitude these corrections are comparable to those obtained by including quarks.
