    • Abstract


      We look at the confinement of tensor gluons (fμν(c) field) in a strong gravity background and find that the strong gravity provides a trap for the confinement of colour waves of selected frequencies. We assume that the tensorfμν(c) field (mediating quanta: tensor 2+f-meson) satisfies Einstein-like equations with a cosmological constant. The colour field satisfy equations resembling Maxwell form of the linear theory of gravitation and see the effect offμν(c) field as playing the role of a medium having space dependent dielectric permeabilities. The solution of colour field equations resemble harmonic oscillator type wave functions with equispaced energy levels (no continuum) leading to confinement.
