Confinement and Strings in MQCD

  title={Confinement and Strings in MQCD},
  author={Amihay Hanany and Matthew J. Strassler and Alberto Zaffaroni},
We study aspects of confinement in the M theory fivebrane version of QCD (MQCD). We show heavy quarks are confined in hadrons (which take the form of membrane-fivebrane bound states) for N = 1 and softly broken N = 2 SU(N) MQCD. We explore and clarify the transition from the exotic physics of the latter to the standard physics of the former. In particular, the many strings and quark-antiquark mesons found in N = 2 field theory by Douglas and Shenker are reproduced. It is seen that in the N = 1… CONTINUE READING
