Quark Confinement and the Hadron Spectrum

  title={Quark Confinement and the Hadron Spectrum},
  author={Nora Brambilla and Antonio Vairo},
  journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology},
These lectures contain an introduction to the following topics: 1) Phenomenology of the hadron spectrum; 2) The static Wilson loop in perturbative and in lattice QCD. Confinement and the flux tube formation; 3) Non static properties: effective field theories and relativistic corrections to the quarkonium potential; 4) The QCD vacuum: minimal area law, Abelian projection and dual Meissner effect, stochastic vacuum. 
Effective field theories for heavy quarkonium
We briefly review how nonrelativistic effective field theories give us a definition of the QCD potentials and a coherent field-theory-derived quantum-mechanical scheme to calculate the properties ofExpand
Quark-antiquark potential in the analytic approach to QCD
The quark-antiquark potential is constructed by making use of a new analytic running coupling in QCD. This running coupling arises under ``analytization'' of the renormalization group equation. TheExpand
Heavy-quarkonium physics from effective-field theories
Abstract.I review recent progress in heavy-quarkonium physics from an effective-field theory perspective. In this unifying framework, I discuss advances in perturbative calculations for low-lyingExpand
Model Independent Results for Heavy Quarkonium
We review a number of results for the spectrum and inclusive decays of heavy quarkonium systems which can be derived from QCD under well controlled approximations. They essentially follow from theExpand
Heavy quarkonium physics
This report is the result of the collaboration and research effort of the Quarkonium Working Group over the last three years. It provides a comprehensive overview of the state of the art inExpand
Non-perturbative match of ultraviolet renormalon
The paper is motivated by observation of a kind of branes in the vacuum state of the lattice SU(2) gluodynamics. The branes represent two-dimensional vortices whose total area scales in physicalExpand
Selected challenges in low-energy QCD and hadron physics
This presentation briefly addresses three basic issues of low-energy QCD: first, whether the Nambu-Goldstone scenario of spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking is well established; secondly, whetherExpand
The nf=2 residual mass in lattice HQET to αs3 order☆
We compute the so called residual mass in Lattice Heavy Quark Effective Theory to α s 3 order in the n f = 2 (unquenched) case. The control of this additive mass renormalization is crucial for theExpand
The Gribov conception of quantum chromodynamics
▪ Abstract Quantum chromodynamics (QCD), which describes hadrons and their interactions, is a non-Abelian gauge theory. The salient property of QCD is color confinement, quantitative understanding ofExpand
Lagrangian approach to the dual gluodynamics
Abstract We discuss the formulation of nonabelian theory in terms of the dual variables. It occurs that the dual gluon is Abelian like, despite of the fact that usual gluons are non-Abelian. TheExpand

Using a combination of x-ray diffraction and electron diffraction, the scientists produced a three-dimensional map of the hybridized "orbital hole" bonding copper with neighboring oxygen atoms in cuprite (Cu2O). Expand
