Various dynamical regimes associated with confined monopoles in the Higgs phase of $\mathcal{N}=2$ two-flavor QCD are studied. The microscopic model we deal with has the $\mathrm{SU}(2)\ifmmode\times\else\texttimes\fi{}\mathrm{U}(1)$ gauge group, with a Fayet\char21{}Iliopoulos term of the U(1) factor, and large and (nearly) degenerate mass terms of the matter hypermultiplets. We present a complete quasiclassical treatment of the BPS sector of this model, including the full set of the first…

Dynamics of non-Abelian strings in supersymmetric gauge theories.

This thesis is devoted to studying strong coupling phenomena (and confinement in particular) in supersymmetric gauge theories. The central object of investigation is the non-Abelian string that is

Heterotic Non-Abelian String of a Finite Length

We consider non-Abelian strings in $\mathcal{N}=2$ supersymmetric quantum chromodynamics (QCD) with the $\mathrm{U}(N)$ gauge group and ${N}_{f}=N$ quark flavors deformed by a mass term for the

Localization of non-Abelian gauge fields on domain walls at weak coupling: D-brane prototypes

Building on our previous results (Ref. [4]), we study D-brane and string prototypes in weakly coupled (3+1)-dimensional supersymmetric field theory engineered to support (2+1)-dimensional domain

What becomes of semilocal non-Abelian strings in N=1 supersymmetric QCD

We study non-Abelian vortex strings in $\mathcal{N}=2$ supersymmetric QCD with the gauge group $\mathrm{U}(N)$ deformed by the mass $\ensuremath{\mu}$ of the adjoint matter. This deformation breaks

We present a detailed analysis of the domain walls in supersymmetric gluodynamics and SQCD. We use the (corrected) Veneziano-Yankielowicz effective Lagrangians to explicitly obtain the wall profiles

Vortices and electrically charged vortices in non-Abelian gauge theories.

A novel feature of vortex solutions for a spontaneously broken SU(N) theory is that their electric charge q is quantized in units of the fundamental charge e, q=mne/ \ensuremath{\surd}2N , with m-Z, and their angular momentum J is nonzero and also quantized, J=nm/2N.

Recently, it has been proposed by Maldacena that large $N$ limits of certain conformal field theories in $d$ dimensions can be described in terms of supergravity (and string theory) on the product of
