Invariant structures and static forces in gauge theories
Abstract
The problem of finding all gauge invariants is considered in connection with confinement. It is shown that any gauge invariant may be built of the exponential line integrals (strings) and local gauge group tensors. The Coulomb field structure is analyzed from this point of view. In the pure SU(n) gauge theory (no matter), a potential of interacting static sources is found to be linearly rising with distance.
