Infra-Red Behavior of the Gluon Propagator in QCD

  • Porter W. Johnson
Part of the Progress in Physics book series (PMP, volume 8)


The status of recent attempts to determine the infra-red behavior of the gluon propagator in quarkless QCD through solution of truncated Dyson-Schwinger equations is surveyed. The situation in time-like axial gauges, as well as covariant gauges, is discussed.
