Non-analyticity in Scale in the Planar Limit of QCD
Herbert Neuberger, Rutgers

Using methods of numerical Lattice Gauge Theory we show that in the limit of a large number of colors, properly regularized Wilson loops have an eigenvalue distribution which changes non-analytically as the overall size of the loop is increased. This establishes a large-$N$ phase transition in continuum planar gauge theory, a fact whose precise implications remain to be worked out.
