Properties of multiply charged color tubes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The properties of color tubes with multiple quark color charges (Q=nq, n>1) on edges are considered in the framework of an early constructed model. It is shown that the tension and the cross section of such a tube are roughly proportional to the color charge while the energy density is equal to that of the quark tube (Q=q). The classical small oscillations and quasiclassical nature of the tube are analyzed. The creation and fission of a multiply charged tube is discussed. It is shown that the multiply charged tube first decays on n independent quark tubes and the subsequent fission of those produces the primary hadrons.
