There is something that perflexed me. First here are the references to my questions: http://www.latticeguy.net/mypubs/pub017.pdf http://bose.res.in/~bossar/chandu.pdf What I'd like to know is the following: Without superstrings. Quark confinement and asymptotic freedom says as you pull the quarks apart.. the forces get stronger such that you need infinite energy to pull them apart. However, if quarks confinement were due to being ends of a superstring. And the temperature of the higgs field go above the critical temperature which makes the vaccum expectation value zero (or reform the symmetry), would the quarks be able to to be pulled apart because the superstrings is not longer exposed to non zero higgs field.. What is really the connection between higgs field and superstrings and quarks confinement? To rephrase it. If the higgs field is above critical temperature or in the condense matter analogy.. in normal rather than superconducting state, would this destroy the string bonds between the quarks or destroy the confining property of the colour force which would no longer become stronger the further they are apart? Is this concept a popular one or just a one of those many Beyond Standard Model physics variants?
