A brief and biased overview of the phenomenon of confinement in QCD is presented in three parts: (1) the definition of confinement, (2) properties of confinement, (3) ideas of confinement. The second part chiefly consists of a brief review of recent lattice computations related to confinement while the third summarizes some of the current analytical approaches to understanding confinement. These include the Dyson‐Schwinger formalism in Landau gauge, Hamiltonian QCD in Coulomb gauge, and the vortex picture of confinement.
