On the String Description of Confinement

  title={On the String Description of Confinement},
  author={Enrique {\'A}lvarez and Cesar Gomez},
A non supersymmetric string background ,directly derived from the string soft dilaton theorem, is used to compute, in the semiclassical approximation, the expectation value of Wilson loops in static gauge. The resulting potential shares common features with the one obtained through Schwarzschild-anti de Sitter spacetime metrics In particular a linear confining potential appears naturally.
