Chaos driven by soft-hard mode coupling in thermal Yang-Mills theory


Journal Article

We argue on a basis of a simple few modes model of SU(2) Yang-Mills theory that the color off-diagonal coupling of the soft plasmon to hard thermal excitations of the gauge field drives the collective plasma oscillations into chaotic motion despite the presence of the plasmon mass. © 1995.
