The Maxwell-BF theory in the presence of magnetic defects via the Julia-Toulouse approach

We use the Julia-Toulouse approach for condensation of defects to show that the topological Abelian BF term can be induced due to a condensation of electric charges and discuss how to include

Confinement, brane symmetry and the Julia-Toulouse approach for condensation of defects

In this work the phenomenon of charge confinement is approached in various contexts. An universal criterion for the identification of this phenomenon in Abelian gauge theories is suggested: the

4D ensembles of percolating center vortices and monopole defects: The emergence of flux tubes withN-ality and gluon confinement

Ensembles of magnetic defects represent quantum variables that have been detected and extensively explored in lattice ${\rm SU}(N)$ pure Yang-Mills theory. They successfully explain many properties

Julia-Toulouse approach to (d+1)-dimensional bosonized Schwinger model with an application to large N QCD

The Julia-Toulouse approach for condensation of charges and defects is used to show that the bosonized Schwinger model can be obtained through a condensation of electric charges in $1+1$ dimensions.

Chern-Simons term in a dual Josephson junction

A dual Josephson junction corresponding to a (2+1)-dimensional non-superconducting layer sandwiched between two (3+1)-dimensional dual superconducting regions constitutes a model of localization of a



The many-defect problem : gauge-like variables for ordered media containing defects

A general theory for ordered media containing a continuous distribution of defects is desirable. The hydrodynamic theory of I. Dzyaloshinskii and G. Volovik is discussed. Another proposal stressing

Disorder version of the Abelian Higgs model and the order of the superconductive phase transition

SummaryWe transform the Abelian Higgs model in three dimensions (i.e. the Grinzburg-Landau theory) to a disorder field theory. The new fields describe the grand canonical ensemble of vortex lines in

Vortex Line Models for Dual Strings

Phase transitions in Abelian lattice gauge theories

Phase transitions in Abelian lattice gauge theories

We study the phase transition in the U (1) lattice gauge theory using the Wilson-Polyakov line as the order parameter. The Wilson-Polyakov line remains very small at strong coupling and becomes

Quark Imprisonment and Vacuum Repulsion

We describe a classical field theory in which infinitely long-range forces are present. These forces do not stem from a direct interaction among particles. They have their origin in a rather peculiar
