For a uniform tube, this leads to a confinement picture with a linearly rising potential V (r) = κr , where κ is the string constant, phenomenologically taken to have the value κ ≈ 0.2 GeV2 .
Phenomenological aspects of new physics at high energy hadron colliders
Furthermore, the only cause of there being no picture that the agent is aware of is the picture tube being faulty.
Causes and Explanations: A Structural-Model Approach. Part II: Explanations
This is captured by the causal network described in Figure 2, where T describes whether or not the picture tube is working (1 if it is and 0 if it is not) and P describes whether or not there is a picture (1 if there is and 0 if there is not).

On the other hand, if U1 = 1, then there is no picture (P = 0) no matter what the status of the picture tube.

For the spatiallyfixed 3Q system, we measure the gluonic excited-state potential, which corresponds to the flux-tube vibrational energy in the flux-tube picture.
The gluonic excitation of the three-quark system in SU(3) lattice QCD
For the 24 different patterns of the spatially-fixed 3Q system, we have measured the gluonic excited-state potential, which corresponds to the flux-tube vibrational energy in the flux-tube picture.

In this new picture, we can see a closed string that propagates between the two boundaries, and the modulus of the tube is just the proper time elapsed in this propagation.

In the long range, the spin-orbit potentials show, for the fir st time, deviations from the flux-tube picture of chromoelectric con finement.
The QCD potential
The physical picture is that of a color flux tube being stretched between the q and the ¯q , figure 28.
Introduction to QCD
The 1/R term in the potential is the finite size effect mentioned above; it is completely due to the quantum fluctuations of the flux tube and, if unambiguously detected, it represents a strong evidence (the strongest we have) in favor of the effective string picture discussed above.

In this way we make contact with a picture of a hybrid meson as an excited flux tube connecting the quark and antiquark.
