Critical exponents and abelian dominance in SU (2) QCD
Abstract
The critical properties of the abelian Polyakov loop and the Polyakov loop in terms of Dirac string are studied in finite temperature abelian projected SU (2) QCD. We evaluate the critical point and the critical exponents from each Polyakov loop in the maximally abelian gauge using the finitesize scaling analysis. Abelian dominance in this case is proved quantitatively. The critical point of each abelian Polyakov loop is equal to that of the nonabelian Polyakov loop within the statistical errors. Also, the critical exponents are in good agreement with those from nonabelian Polyakov loops.
