Precanonical quantization of the Yang-Mills fields and the mass gap problemWe overview the ideas of the precanonical quantization approach and apply it to the Yang-Mills fields. We show how the approach reduces the mass gap problem to a quantum mechanical spectral problem similar to that for the magnetic Schroedinger operator with a Clifford-valued magnetic field.
