Gluon propagators in maximal abelian gauge of SU(2) lattice gauge theory
Abstract
We study propagators of diagonal and offdiagonal gluons in the momentum space in maximal abelian gauge of SU(2) lattice gauge theory. Remaining U(1) degrees of freedom are fixed using Landau gauge. We find substantial difference between the propagator of the diagonal and the offdiagonal gluon in the infrared region. The propagator of the offdiagonal gluon is suppressed in comparison with that of the diagonal gluon at small momenta. In the ultraviolet region both propagators behave as in nonabelian Landau gauge.
