Title: Dual superconductivity and typology of the QCD vacuum

Abstract

Within the dual superconductor model for the QCD vacuum we compare the field penetration depth {lambda} with the correlation length {xi} of the Higgs condensate. The comparison places the vacuum marginally on the type II side. A qualitative check of the interaction between two parallel flux tubes gives also consistent indications for a weak repulsive behaviour.
