Dual GinzburgLandau Theory on NonPerturbative QCD Phenomena
Abstract
The fundamental building blocks of matter are quarks. They are the elementary particles in the standard theory together with the leptons. Hence, it is fundamental to describe hadrons and nuclei in terms of quarks and gluons, the subject of which is called Quark Nuclear Physics. The quarkgluon dynamics is described by quantum chromodynamics (QCD). Our interest is the nonperturbative aspect of QCD as confinement, chiral symmetry breaking, hadronization, etc. We introduce the dual GinzburgLandau theory (DGL), where the color monopole fields and their condensation in the QCD vacuum play essential roles in describing these nonperturbative phenomena. We discuss the connection of the monopole fields with instantons, which are the classical solutions of the nonabelian gauge theory.
