Abstract

We investigate the properties of non-Abelian magnetic fields at high temperature using Monte Carlo simulation and finite-size scaling on SU(2) lattice gauge theory. Magnetic flux is introduced using twisted boundary conditions. We find that color magnetic fields are screened, not confined, at long distances, and measure the screening length.
