Abstract

Non-Abelian vortices are topologically stable objects in the color-flavor locked phase of dense QCD. We derive a dual Lagrangian starting with the Ginzburg-Landau effective Lagrangian for the color-flavor locked phase, and obtain topological interactions of non-Abelian vortices with quasiparticles such as U(1)B Nambu-Goldstone bosons (phonons) and massive gluons. We find that the phonons couple to the translational zero modes of the vortices while the gluons couple to their orientational zero modes in the internal space.
