|Van Baal Pierre Et Al
This volume is a collection of selected papers by Pierre van Baal on the subject of quark ? gluon interactions. He concentrates on semi-perturbative phenomena that occur when these particles are confined to a box. He introduced in 1998 the notion of calorons to explain what happens in the high temperature phase of the quark ? gluon plasma. Van Baal?s discoveries of the mathematical intricacies of twisted gluon field configurations have left their mark on the field, opening new directions for numerical simulations. This reprint is intended to be a comprehensive introduction for all those who wish to have deeper understanding of quark ? gluon dynamics.
