In the context of the formulation of QCD with dual potentials, we show that chiral-symmetry breaking occurs only in the confined state. Therefore, the transition temperature, beyond which chiral symmetry is restored, is the same as the deconfinement temperature. To carry out the calculation, it is necessary to couple quarks to dual gluons. We indicate how this is done (to lowest order in the magnetic coupling constant) and give the Feynman rules for quark–dual-gluon vertices.
