Perturbative static quark potential in Maximal Abelian gauge

Matthias Berwein, Yukinari Sumino

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We calculate the static quark potential for an SU(N) gauge theory in the Maximal Abelian gauge as well as its Abelian projection up to two loops in perturbation theory. We discuss its renormalization properties. The result is compared with a recent lattice result at r≲0.5 fm.
