My current interests are in: 1. Theory and phenomenology of the instanton vacuum in QCD; 2. Chiral Quark-Soliton Model of baryons; 3. Mechanisms of colour confinement; 4. Parton distributions in nucleons at low virtuality; A list of recent papers by D.Diakonov is given here.A recent review on instantons can be found here.Reformulating Yang--Mills theory as a Quantum Gravity can be found here.Lecture notesLecture notes on Non-perturbative methods in Quantum Field Theory:L1 , L2,3 , L4 , L5 , L6 , L7 , L8 , L9 figure for L9 , L10 , L11 , L12 , L13 .Lecture notes on Quantum Theory on the Lattice:L1 , L2 , L3 , L4 , L5 , L6 , L7 , L8 .
These birds illustrate GAUGE INVARIANCE -- the main principle on which all fundamental
interactions are based ! The birds are not killed by high voltage as long as they don't touch
two wires simultaneously. Only the difference of electric potentials is observable.
