PDF - Doctoral Thesis


In this work we discuss the role of topological degrees of freedom in very low-energy hadronic processes (vacuum polarization and vacuum birefringence). We also present an approach which enables to investigate the microscopic dynamics of non-perturbative processes: this is achieved by constructing an effective statistical theory for topological vacuum gauge configurations, by means of Lattice QCD simulations.
