Duality Transformation and Confinement in Gauge Theories

Quantum Chromodynamics is widely considered as one of the most promising candidates for a fundamental theory of the hadronic world. Indeed the short distance behaviour of this theory has been successfully extracted with the renormalized perturbation techniques and even partly tested with experiment. However the long distance structure of the theory poses a number of yet unsolved questions, owing to the non-perturbative nature of the problem.
