Description

The thermodynamic properties of the $SU(3)$ Yang-Mills theory are investigated from the confining phase up to 250 $T_c$. Results for the temperature dependence of the entropy density, energy density and pressure are presented with an accuracy of about 0.5%. The framework of shifted boundary conditions is considered where the entropy density is related to the expectation value of the off-diagonal components of the energy-momentum tensor. The pressure and the energy density are then obtained by numerical integration. A comparison with data collected by other groups is discussed.
