    Abstract

    We report a numerical study of SU(2) lattice gauge theory in the minimal Coulomb gauge at β = 2.2 and 9 different volumes. After extrapolation to infinite volume, our fit agrees with a lattice discretization of Gribov's formula for the transverse equaltime would-be physical gluon propagator, that vanishes like |k| at k = 0, whereas the free equal-time propagator (2|k|)-1 diverges. Our fit lends reality to a confinement scenario in which the would-be physical gluons leave the physical spectrum while the long-range Coulomb force confines color.
