Dual Superconductor Models of Color Confinement / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Physicists who wish to understand the modeling of confinement of quantum chromodynamics, as exhibited by dual superconductors, will find this book an excellent introduction. The author focuses on the models themselves, especially the Landau--Ginzburg model of a dual superconductor, also called the Dual Abelian Higgs model.
