Lattice calculation of the heavy quark potential at non-zero temperature

We calculated the real and imaginary parts of the static quark-antiquark potential at T > 0 in 2 + 1 flavor QCD using correlators of Wilson lines in Coulomb gauge and lattices with temporal extent N-tau = 12. We find that the real part of the potential is larger than the singlet free energy but smaller than the zero temperature potential. The imaginary part of the potential is similar in size to the perturbative HTL result. (C) 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
