Gluon-meson duality in the Mean Field Approximation

  • Ch. Wetterich
Theoretical physics


In a gauge-fixed language gluon-meson duality can be described as the Higgs mechanism for “spontaneous symmetry breaking” of color. We present a mean field computation which suggests that this phenomenon is plausible in QCD. One obtains realistic masses of the light mesons and baryons.
