Description

We summarise the most striking features of the spectra of closed confining flux tubes, for the flux in the fundamental and some other representations. We compare to recent theoretical predictions. In $D=2+1$ we present results for the continuum string tensions for theories ranging from SU(2) to SU(16) and we determine the leading correction to the N-dependence of k-strings.
