We report on our simulation of finite temperature lattice QCD with two flavors of script capital O sign(a) Symanzik-improved fermions and script capital O sign(a2) Symanzik-improved glue. Our thermodynamic simulations were performed on an 83 × 4 lattice, and we have performed complementary zero temperature simulations on an 83 × 16 lattice. We compare our results to those from simulations with two flavors of Wilson fermions and discuss the improvement resulting from use of the improved action.
