# Non-Abelian strings in N=1 supersymmetric QCD

@article{Ievlev2017NonAbelianSI, title={Non-Abelian strings in N=1 supersymmetric QCD}, author={E. N. Ievlev and Alexei V Yung}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2017}, volume={95}, pages={125004} }

Non-Abelian flux tubes (strings) are well studied in N=2 supersymmetric QCD in (3+1) dimensions. In addition to translational zero modes they have also orientational moduli associated with rotations of their fluxes inside a non-Abelian group. The dynamics of the orientational moduli is described by the two dimensional CP(N-1) model living on the world sheet of the non-Abelian string. In this paper we consider a deformation of N=2 supersymmetric QCD with the U(N) gauge group and N_f=N quark…
