Abstract: We study the equation of state of pure SU( ) gauge theory using Monte Carlo simulations. The scale setting of lattice parameters has been carried by using the gradient flow. We propose a reference scale for the SU( ) gauge theory satisfying , which is fixed by a natural scaling down of the standard scale for the SU( ) case based on perturbative analyses. We also show the thermodynamic quantities as a function of , which are derived by the energy–momentum tensor using the small-flow-time expansion of the gradient flow.
