Description

We calculate the potential between static quarks in the fundamental representation of the F4 exceptional gauge group using domain structures of the thick center vortex model. As non-trivial center elements are absent, the asymptotic string tension is lost while an intermediate linear potential is observed. SU(3) is a subgroup of F4. Investigating the decomposition of the 26 dimensional representation of F4 to the SU(3) representations, might explain what accounts for the intermediate linear potential, in the exceptional groups with no center element.
