Confinement Mechanism in Quantum Chromodynamics

The old idea of explaining confinement in QCD by magnetic monopoles has in recent years become an active area of investigation in lattice gauge theory. Faculty member John Stack and students have performed calculations for an SU(2) gauge group, which use magnetic monopoles to give a quantitative explanation of the heavy quark potential and glueball spectrum.
