Quark Condensate and Confining Potentials

Authors: P. R. Silva

Two seminal ideas are considered in this paper. One of them was introduced by Tryon [Nature 246, 396(1973)], dealing with the possibility of the universe being created from nothing. The other one was proposed by Thompson [J. Phys. A9, L25(1976)], in order to study the critical behavior of a cooperative system. Both ideas are implemented conjointly with the use of linear and quadratic confining potentials as a means to make estimates of the quark condensate of the QCD. In accomplishing this task, the MIT bag model by Chodos et al. [Phys. Rev. D9, 3471(1974)] is also taken in account.
