TitleBose-Einstein Condensation and large-N colour confinement
SpeakerDr. Hidehiko Shimada ( Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics, Kyoto University )


I will discuss my recent work arXiv:2001.10459 with Masanori Hanada(Southampton) and Nico Wntergerst(Niels Bohr Institute). In that work we have pointed out that colour confinement in large-N gauge theory and Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) share basic characteristic features, order paramters, and the basic mechanism. Thus, at a basic level, BEC and large-N confinement may be considered as the same phenomenon, the only difference being that of the gauge symmetry group, S_N for BEC and SU(N) for confinement.
