From the line of constant physics at m PS /m V =0.65 and 0.80, we extract the heavy-quark free energies, the effective running coupling g eff (T) and the Debye screening mass m D (T) for various color channels of heavy quark-quark and quark-antiquark pairs above the critical temperature. The free energies are well approximated by the screened Coulomb form with the appropriate Casimir factors at high temperature. The magnitude and the temperature dependence of the Debye mass are compared to those of the next-to-leading-order thermal perturbation theory and to a phenomenological formula in terms of g eff (T) . We make a comparison between our results with the Wilson quark action and the previous results with the staggered quark action. The spatial string tension is also studied in the high temperature phase and is compared to the next-to-next-leading-order prediction in an effective theory with dimensional reduction.journal articleAmerican Physical Society2007-04application/pdfPhysical Review D775074501Physical Review DAA0077362415507998https://niigata-u.repo.nii.ac.jp/record/2279/files/75_7_074501.pdfenginfo:doi/10.1103/PhysRevD.75.074501(C) 2007 American Physical Society
