Chromodynamic flux tubes Academic Article uri icon


  • We show that in the presence of condensation of a gauge field there is confinement of chromodynamic charges. Between these confined charges an electric flux tube is generated. In particular we have considered the classical solutions for an SU(2) Yang-Mills theory in the presence of such a condensate. This treatment has been motivated by the cancellation of infrared divergences in 2+1 dimensions.
