A model of color confinement

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

    Abstract

    A simple model is presented that describes the free energy W(J) of QCD coupled to an external current that is a single plane wave, J(x) = H cos(k · x). The model satisfies a bound obtained previously on W(J) that comes from the Gribov horizon. If one uses this model to fit recent lattice data-which give for the gluon propagator D(k) a non-zero value, D(0) ≠ =0, at k = 0 -the data favor a non-analyticity inW(J).
