Confinement and spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking are the most fundamental phenomena in quark nuclear physics, where hadrons and nuclei are described in terms of quarks and gluons. The dual Ginzburg-Landau (DGL) theory contains monopole fields as the most essential degrees of freedom. Their condensation in the vacuum is modelled to describe quark confinement in strong connection with QCD. We then demonstrate that the DGL theory is able to describe the spontaneous breakdown of chiral symmetry.
