Abstract

In this talk, we will review the notion of non-invertible symmetries and we will study adjoint QCD in two dimensions. It turns out that this theory has a plethora of such symmetries which require deconfinement in the massless case. When a mass or certain quartic interactions are tunrned on, these symmetries are broken and the theory confines. In addition, we will use these symmetries to calculate the string tension for small mass and make some comments about naturalness along the RG flow.
