Title: K-strings and minimal surfaces

Abstract

Some general properties of the confining strings joining higher rank sources in SU(N) gauge theories (i.e. k-strings) are compared with those of the confining string attached to sources in the fundamental representation. Some aspects reflect features of the minimal surfaces associated with the string world-sheet.
