Moduli spaces of maximally supersymmetric solutions on noncommutative tori and noncommutative orbifoldsMay 19 2000A maximally supersymmetric configuration of super Yang-Mills living on a noncommutative torus corresponds to a constant curvature connection. On a noncommutative toroidal orbifold there is an additional constraint that the connection be equivariant. We ... More

Compactification of M(atrix) theory on noncommutative toroidal orbifoldsDec 20 1999May 19 2000It was shown by A. Connes, M. Douglas and A. Schwarz that noncommutative tori arise naturally in consideration of toroidal compactifications of M(atrix) theory. A similar analysis of toroidal Z_{2} orbifolds leads to the algebra B_{\theta} that can be ... More

Plaquette expectation value and lattice free energy of three-dimensional SU(N) gauge theorySep 08 2006Nov 23 2006We use high precision lattice simulations to calculate the plaquette expectation value in three-dimensional SU(N) gauge theory for N=2,3,4,5,8. Using these results, we study the N-dependence of the first non-perturbative coefficient in the weak-coupling ... More
