Revealing Structure in the Gluon Field

  • Using an algorithm to remove short-distance noisy fluctuations, the smooth long-distance structure of gluons can be revealed.

  • Hot spots marked by red show where the energy of the gluon field is strong.

  • The isolated lumps surviving the smoothing process are associated with a knotted-winding behavior in the gluon field.
