Instantaneous Dynamics of QCD

    Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


    We start from the observation that, in the confining phase of QCD, the instantaneous color-Coulomb potential in Coulomb gauge is confining. This suggests that, in the confining phase, the dynamics, as expressed in the set of Schwinger-Dyson equations, may be dominated by the purely instantaneous terms. We develop a calculational scheme that expresses the instantaneous dynamics in the local formulation of QCD that includes a cut-off at the Gribov horizon.
