Abstract

We present results of lattice simulations of the Plane Wave Matrix Model (PWMM). The PWMM is a theory of supersymmetric quantum mechanics that has a welldefined canonical ensemble. We simulate this theory by applying rational hybrid Monte Carlo techniques to a naïve lattice action. We examine the strong coupling behaviour of the model focussing on the deconfinement transition.
