Flux tubes at finite temperature
A bstractThe chromoelectric field generated by a static quark-antiquark pair, with its peculiar tube-like shape, can be nicely described, at zero temperature, within the dual superconductor scenario
Chromoelectric flux tubes in QCD
We analyze the distribution of the chromoelectric field generated by a static quark-antiquark pair in the SU(3) vacuum and revisit previous results for SU(2). We find that the transverse profile of
On QCD strings beyond non-interacting model
We investigate the implications of Nambu-Goto (NG), L\"uscher-Weisz (LW) and Polyakov-Kleinert (PK) string actions for the Casimir energy of the QCD flux-tube at one and two loop order at finite
Type of dual superconductivity for the SU(2) Yang–Mills theory
We investigate the type of dual superconductivity responsible for quark confinement. For this purpose, we solve the field equations of the U(1) gauge-scalar model to obtain a single static vortex
Quantum delocalization of strings with boundary action in Yang-Mills theory
The width of the quantum delocalization of the QCD strings is investigated in effective string models beyond free Nambu-Goto approximation. We consider two Lorentzian-invariant boundary-terms in the
Interplay between the holographic QCD phase diagram and entanglement entropy
A bstractIn earlier work, we introduced a dynamical Einstein-Maxwell-dilaton model which mimics essential features of QCD (thermodynamics) below and above deconfinement. Although there are some


Color distribution of confining electric flux in Abelian projection gauges.
A numerical test is carried out on one of the predictions of 't Hooft's Abelian projection'' theory of quark confinement via monopole condensation, found that the color distribution of the confining electric field is completely random, while in the maximal Abelian gauge there is only a rather modest enhancement of the diagonal component above its random value.
Graphic evidence for non-Abelian flux tubes.
From Monte Carlo calculations of plaquette--Wilson-loop correlations for three-dimensional SU(2) lattice gauge theory, we give unambiguous graphic demonstrations of the formation of non-Abelian
