After reviewing the ro⁁le of center vortices and monopoles in Wilson’s area law of confinement, we estimate the string tension for an ensemble of non-interacting center vortices. Next, we discuss the string representations of dual superconductor type SU(2)- and SU(3)-gauge models and their application to the evaluation of field strength correlators. The large-distance asymptotic behaviors of the latter are shown to be in agreement with the stochastic vacuum model of QCD and existing lattice data. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    In the frame of a three-layer, quasi-geostrophic analytical model of an f-plane geophysical flow, the Lagrangian advection induced by the interaction of a monopole vortex with an isolated topographic feature is addressed. Two different cases when the monopole is located either within the upper...

    We discuss the effective metric produced in superfluid [sup 3]He-A by such topological objects as the radial disgyration and monopole. In relativistic theories these metrics are similar to that of the local string and global monopole, respectively. But in [sup 3]He-A they have a negative angle...
