    Abstract

    We present calculations of the potential energy between an infinitely heavy quark-antiquark pair at high temperatures and densities. The calculations are carried out via lattice QCD in conjunction with a recently developed Bayesian inference method. We provide a detailed overview lattice QCD, Bayesian infer- ence methods and the potential energy itself. We conclude by considering some suitable potential models put forth in the literature. At sufficiently high tem- perature we observe the apparent onset of deconfinement, while at high densities no such deconfinement is observed.
