Title: Light cone quantization and Savvidy instability in dense quark matter

Abstract

Solving instability of the Savvidy vacuum in QCD is a longstanding problem. Using light cone quantization, we analyze the problem not in the real confining vacuum but in dense quark matter where gluons interact weakly with each other. We find a stable ferromagnetic ground state of gluons which carry a single longitudinal momentum. Their states are composed as if they are confined in a two-dimensional quantum well. This supports our previous result that gluons form a quantum Hall state in dense quark matter.
