Topological Model for Domain Walls in (Super-)Yang-Mills Theories


We discuss a topological description of the confining phase of (Super-)Yang-Mills theories with gauge group SU(N) which encodes all the Aharonov-Bohm phases of configurations of non-local operators. This topological action shows an additional 1-form gauge symmetry. After the introduction of domain walls, this 1-form gauge symmetry demands the appearance of new fields on the worldvolume of the wall. These new fields have a topological Chern-Simons action at level N, also suggested by string theory constructions
