**ABSTRACT:**Following a recently proposed confinement generating mechanism, we provide a new string inspired model with a massive dilaton and a new dilaton coupling function [5]. By solving analytically the equations of motion, a new class of confining interquark potentials is derived which includes several popular potential forms given in the literature.

**ABSTRACT:**We review some of the most recent work on confinement in 4d gauge theories with a massive scalar field (dilaton). Emphasis is put on the derivation of confining analytical solutions to the Coulomb problem versus dilaton effective couplings to gauge terms. It is shown that these effective theories can be relevant to model quark confinement and may shed some light on confinement mechanism. Moreover, the study in the heavy meson sector of an interquark potential derived from Dick Model, proves that phenomenological investigation of this mechanism is more than justified and deserves more efforts.AIP Conference Proceedings 01/2007; 881:238-245. - [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

**ABSTRACT:**Some recent work on the implications of a dilaton in 4d gauge theories are revisited. In part I of this paper we see how an effective dilaton coupling to gauge kinetic term provides a simple attractive mechanism to generate confinement. In particular, we put emphasis on the derivation of confining analytical solutions and look into the problem how dilaton degrees of freedom modify Coulom potential and when a confining phase occurs. In part II, we solve the semi-relativistic wave equation, for Dick interquark potential using the Shifted l-expansion technique (SLET) in the heavy quarkonium sector. The results of this phenomenological analysis proves that these effective theories can be relevant to model quark confinement and may shed some light on confinement mechanism.International Journal of Modern Physics A 10/2007; 22:5717-5724. · 1.13 Impact Factor
