Confinement study of an SU(4) gauge theory with fermions in multiple representations

We study the phase structure of an SU(4) gauge theory with dynamical fermions in both the fundamental and the two-index antisymmetric representations. Our lattice calculations show the existence of a first-order confinement transition. Although the presence of two different representations opens up the possibility of two separate confinement transitions, our results are consistent with a single phase transition for both fermion representations.
