Vortex structures in pure SU ( 3 ) lattice gauge theory


The structures of confining vortices which underlie pure SU(3) Yang-Mills theory are studied by means of lattice gauge theory. Vortices and Z3 monopoles are defined as dynamical degrees of freedom of the Z3 gauge theory which emerges by center gauge fixing and by subsequent center projection. It is observed for the first time for the case of SU(3) that… (More)
