Theoretical justification of the occurrence of multimode squeezed and entangled colour states in QCD is given. We show that gluon entangled states which are closely related with corresponding squeezed states can appear by the four-gluon self-interaction. Correlations for the collinear gluons are revealed two groups of the colour correlations which is significant at consider of the quark-antiquark pair productions.
It is shown that the interaction of colour quark with the stochastic vacuum of QCD leads to the loss of information on the initial colour state of the particle, which gives a new perspective regarding the confinement of quarks phenomenon. The effect is demonstrated for a single particle and in the multiparticle case is proposed.
Quantum characteristics (purity and von Neumann entropy) are used to analyse the process of interaction.
