Color confinement of Technicolor (QCD)

  1. Dec 26, 2011 #1
    I don't understand why technicolor interactions are unobservable at low energies due to the fact that they are strong and confining.

    I thought color confinement means that quarks cannot be separated but rather new quark-antiquark pairs form and result in Hadron jets. Isn't this a feature of QCD interactions at higher energies?

    Very funny, as a matter of fact I'm an undergraduate and my assignment is to write a review of Technicolour without going into the mathematics. This is very difficult for someone who has taken only one course in subatomic physics and doesn't know any quantum field theory. I thought that maybe somebody could explain something.
