# SU(N) → Z(N) dual superconductor models: the magnetic loop ensemble point of view

@inproceedings{Oxman2017SUNZ, title={SU(N) → Z(N) dual superconductor models: the magnetic loop ensemble point of view}, author={Luis E. Oxman}, year={2017} }

In this work, we initially discuss some physical properties of effective SU( N ) → Z( N ) YMH models, emphasizing the important role of valence gluons. Next, we review how adjoint fields are naturally generated as an effective description of “adjoint” loops in 4D. Finally, we discuss the consequences that can be learnt from this point of view, and briefly comment on some improvements.
