# Non-Abelian string junctions as confined monopoles

@article{Shifman2004NonAbelianSJ, title={Non-Abelian string junctions as confined monopoles}, author={Mikhail Shifman and Alexei V Yung}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2004}, volume={70}, pages={045004} }

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…
