Color state of quarks in quark-gluon plasma
Hi, I have been taught that quarks don't exist individually on their own, as they has with be with at least another antiquark to form a colorless state. But in the quark-gluon plasma, do we have individual quarks in a color state or do they still, somehow, are in a color-neutral state?

Thanks!

The overall quark gluon plasma is still color neutral, but inside the quarks are free.

Two other quarks are possible as well (forming a baryon instead of a meson).
