Dynamical chiral symmetry breaking and its connection to the generation of hadron masses has historically been viewed as a vacuum phenomenon. We argue that confinement makes such a position untenable. If quark-hadron duality is a reality in QCD, then condensates, those quantities that have commonly been viewed as constant empirical mass-scales that fill all spacetime, are instead wholly contained within hadrons; i.e., they are a property of hadrons themselves and expressed, e.g., in their Bethe…

Empirical Consequences of Emergent Mass

A background to this perspective is provided, presenting a discussion of the gluon mass and QCD's process-independent effective charge and highlighting an array of observable expressions of emergent mass, ranging from its manifestations in pion parton distributions to those in nucleon electromagnetic form factors.

Confinement in QCD and generic Yang-Mills theories with matter representations

We derive the low-energy limit of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) and show that in the ’t Hooft limit, i.e. for a very large number of colors and increasing ’t Hooft coupling, quark confinement is

Emergence of Hadron Mass and Structure

Visible matter is characterised by a single mass scale; namely, the proton mass. The proton’s existence and structure are supposed to be described by quantum chromodynamics (QCD); yet, absent Higgs

Emergent phenomena and partonic structure in hadrons

Modern facilities are poised to tackle fundamental questions within the Standard Model, aiming to reveal the nature of confinement, its relationship to dynamical chiral symmetry breaking (DCSB) – the

Three Lectures on Hadron Physics

These lectures explain that comparisons between experiment and theory can expose the impact of running couplings and masses on hadron observables and thereby aid materially in charting the momentum

Baryons and the Borromeo

The kernels in the tangible matter of our everyday experience are composed of light quarks. At least, they are light classically; but they don’t remain light. Dynamical effects within the Standard

The pion: an enigma within the Standard Model

Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) is the strongly interacting part of the Standard Model. It is supposed to describe all of nuclear physics; and yet, almost fifty years after the discovery of gluons and

Tracing masses of ground-state light-quark mesons

We describe a symmetry-preserving calculation of the light-quark meson spectrum, which combines a description of pion properties with reasonable estimates of the masses of heavier mesons, including
