The Winding of the Gluon Field

  • Using the same smoothing algorithm, the winding of the gluons can be revealed.

  • Just as water can swirl down a drain in clockwise and counter-clockwise directions, gluons can wind in positive (red to yellow shading) or negative (blue to green shading) directions.

  • Opposite windings next to each other can wipe each other out (annihilate). Watch the upper left corner!
