Flux tubes in Nf = 2 + 1 QCD with external magnetic fields
We study the behavior of the confining flux tube in N f = 2 + 1 QCD at the physical point, discretized with the stout smearing improved staggered quark action and the tree level Symazik gauge action.
Dual superconductor mechanism of confinement on the lattice
SummaryWe investigate the dual superconductor mechanism of confinement for pureSU(2) lattice gauge theory in the maximally Abelian gauge. We focus on the dual Meissner effect. We find that the


Space structure of confining strings.
The energy density of the chromoelectric field generated by the static qq-bar pair is computed in the SU(2) lattice gauge theory and approaches a constant value at R/sub q//sub q-bar/.
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
Correlation length of the vacuum condensate in lattice gauge theories
The correlation length λ of the vacuum condensateG2 is determined by Montecarlo simulation of anSU(2) lattice gauge theory. The result isG2 λ4 = 0.0019 ± 0.0002. The implications of this result are
