# Monopole-Based Scenarios of Confinement and Deconfinement in 3D and 4D

@article{Antonov2017MonopoleBasedSO, title={Monopole-Based Scenarios of Confinement and Deconfinement in 3D and 4D}, author={Dmitry Antonov}, journal={Universe}, year={2017}, volume={3}, pages={50} }

This review discusses confinement, as well as the topological and critical phenomena, in the gauge theories which provide the condensation of magnetic monopoles. These theories include the 3D SU(N) Georgi-Glashow model, the 4D [U(1)] N - 1 -invariant compact QED , and the [U(1)] N - 1 -invariant dual Abelian Higgs model. After a general introduction to the string models of confinement, an analytic description of this penomenon is provided at the example of the 3D SU(N) Georgi-Glashow model…

In this review, after a general introduction to the effective string theory (EST) description of confinement in pure gauge theories, we discuss the behaviour of EST as the temperature is increased.…

### Dual Superconductor Model of Confinement: Quantum-String Representation of the 4D Yang–Mills Theory on a Torus and the Correlation Length away from the London Limit

This paper is devoted to the dual superconductor model of confinement in the 4D Yang–Mills theory. In the first part, we consider the latter theory compactified on a torus, and use the dual…

### Fully Quantum String Representation of a Wilson Loop in the Finite-Temperature 3D Yang-Mills Theory

- PhysicsSymmetry
- 2020

It is demonstrated that at a temperature which is roughly twice smaller than the deconfinement critical temperature, the value of the coupling of that term becomes such that the string conformal anomaly cancels out, thereby admitting a fully quantum description of the quark–antiquark string in 3D rather than 26D.

### On the Temperature Dependence of the String-Breaking Distance in QCD

- PhysicsUniverse
- 2023

The temperature dependence of the QCD string-breaking distance is evaluated in terms of the string tension and the rate of production of light mesons in the chromo-electric field of a flux tube. As a…

The classic argument by Polyakov showing that monopoles produce confinement in the Higgs phase of the Georgi-Glashow model is generalized to study the spectrum of k-strings. We find that the…
