Hot news: first baryon that cannot be made of three quarks discovered !

Research interests:

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.

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.
