- Wilson loop and confinement
Quark and gluons interact strongly. At low energy in particular their interaction coupling constant becomes large, giving origin to the property of confinement: quarks are therefore confined into hadrons. The field theory describing the strong interactions, QCD (Quantum Chromodynamics), displays such property. However, the study of confinement should be performed with non-perturbative methods. Lattice QCD is such a method, in which the Lagrangian of QCD is discretized on a space-time lattice and field theoretical calculations are reduced to the numerical computation of multidimensional integrals. An object of particular interest in relation to confinement studies is a correlator called Wilson loop.
Scope of this thesis is to test and optimize a code for the calculation of the Wilson loop in QCD and to understand how confinement arises from the behavior of the Wilson loop.
