Abstract
This thesis presents a study of the Gribov-Zwanziger framework: from propagators to glueballs. The chapters 2 and 3 are meant as an introduction and only require a basic knowledge of quantum field theory. Chapter 2 explains the techniques behind algebraic renormalization, which shall be widely used throughout this thesis, while chapter 3 tries to give a pedagogic overview of the Gribov-Zwanziger framework as this is not available yet in the literature. The subsequent chapters contain own research. First in chapter 4, we shall dig a bit deeper in the Gribov-Zwanziger framework, by exploring the BRST symmetry and the KO criterium. Next, in chapter 5 we shall elaborate on the ghost and the gluon propagator in the infrared and present a refined Gribov-Zwanziger action. Further, we present two chapters on the search for physical operators within the (refined) Gribov-Zwanziger framework, chapter 6 and 7. A small chapter 8 is devoted to some values for different glueballs. We end this thesis with the conclusions, chapter 9.
