Abstract

Computer simulations indicate that the range of the force responsible for chiral symmetry breaking in quantum chromodynamics is relatively short, independent of confinement, and depends strongly on the color representation of the quarks. Chiral-symmetry restoration temperatures are obtained for quarks in either the fundamental or the adjoint representations of color SU(2). Results on higher representations support the symmetry-breaking pattern ("tumbling") suggested by Raby, Dimopoulos, and Susskind.
