Description
We present some results about spontaneous breaking of global symmetries for four-flavor, three color QCD on compact spaces with two short directions. When the two short directions have equal length and identical boundary conditions, there is a single transition. When the two short directions have boundary conditions of opposite parity and are of roughly equal extent, the C-breaking and deconfinement transitions separate. When the two short dimensions are of different length, the transitions are modified in qualitative agreement with expectations from dimensional reduction. These features resemble the situation in pure gauge simulations at small and large number of colors.
