In this project we propose to perform a detailed analysis of the various aspects involved in the phenomenon of dynamical gluon mass generation using as tool the so-called Schwinger-Dyson equations. This analysis will be carried out within the theoretical framework that emerges from the combination of the pinch technique with the background field method. Our project is divided into four main parts, which will be studied simultaneously. More specifically, they are as follow: (i) to include the effects of the two-loops dressed diagrams in the gluon Schwinger-Dyson equation, in order to obtain a better quantitative agreement with the lattice results; (ii) to study the form factors of the three and four gluon vertices entering into the definition of the gluon Schwinger-Dyson equation; (iii) to derive and analyze the solutions of theBethe-Salpeter equations, which describe the formation of dynamical massless poles, that are crucial for the gluon mass generation; and finally (iv) to study the Schwinger-Dyson equations for the gluon and the quark propagators in general covariant gauges.
