Description

In preparation of lattice studies of the two-color QCD phase diagram we study chiral restoration and deconfinement at finite temperature with two flavors of staggered quarks using an RHMC algorithm on GPUs [1]. We measure the chiral condensate and the corresponding chiral susceptibility as a function of the lattice coupling across the chiral transition. Using Ferrenberg-Swendsen reweighting we extract the maxima of the chiral susceptibility in order to determine pseudo-critical couplings on various lattices suitable for chiral extrapolations. These are then used to determine the relation between coupling and temperature. [1] Scheffler, Schmidt, Smith, von Smekal, arXiv:1311.4324
