Title: "The Yang-Mills Vacuum Wavefunctional, and a torelon probe of high T"

Abstract: There are currently several different proposals for the
ground state wavefunctional in Yang-Mills theory, particularly in 2+1
dimensions.  I will report on some recent numerical tests of these
proposals.  I will also briefly discuss a recent lattice Monte Carlo
calculation at finite temperature, which may be relevant to the study of
color electric flux tubes past the deconfinement transition.
