Abstract

From first principles, using a screened expansion, a simple one-loop analytical expression is provided for the ghost propagator of pure SU(3) Yang-Mills theory in a generic linear covariant gauge. At variance with the Landau gauge, the ghost dressing function is suppressed in the infrared and vanishes at p = 0, as predicted by other approaches in the continuum. However, in the very limited range where lattice data are available, no detectable deviation is found from the Landau gauge, thus reconciling some recent lattice data and previous continuum predictions.
