Subject: Confining Strings and Infinite Statistics

I will present a status report for the study of confining strings. First, I will focus on confining strings in massive adjoint two-dimensional QCD, where analytical progress is most straightforward to achieve. These theories provide an interesting example of interacting relativistic models with infinite (quantum Boltzman) statistics. Then I will describe lessons learnt from this exercise for confining strings in higher dimensions and discuss relations between confining strings, 2d gravity and TTbar deformation.
