# A Review of Instanton Quarks and Confinement

@article{Baal2007ARO, title={A Review of Instanton Quarks and Confinement}, author={Pierre van Baal}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology}, year={2007}, volume={892}, pages={241-244} }

We review the recent progress made in understanding instantons at finite temperature (calorons) with non‐trivial holonomy, and their monopole constituents as relevant degrees of freedom for the confined phase.

We compute the functional determinant for the fluctuations around the most general self-dual configuration with unit topological charge for 4D SU(2) Yang-Mills with one compactified direction. This…

Determinant of the SU(N) caloron with nontrivial holonomy

In the bottom-up approach of emergent gravity, we attempt to find symplectic gauge fields emerging from Euclidean Schwarzschild instanton, which is studied as electromagnetism defined on the…

Skyrmions from calorons

- PhysicsJournal of High Energy Physics

A bstractWe derive a one-parameter family of gauged Skyrme models from Yang-Mills theory on S1 × ℝ3, in which skyrmions are well-approximated by calorons and monopoles. In particular we study the…

Calorons, symmetry, and the soliton trinity

- Physics

This thesis is concerned with calorons -- finite-action, anti-self-dual connections over S^1\times R^3. We study three major topics: a review of the geometry of calorons, and their different…
