    • Abstract


      We study a model of quark confinement defined by the vanishing of colour currents. The model is shown to be equivalent to quantum chromodynamics and this equivalence is interpreted as due to the compositeness of the colour gluons. The Green’s functions of the theory are found to contain nontrivial structure only for colour singlet composites which can be identified with hadrons.
