Quantum Field Theory

- F. Wilczek
- Physics
- 9 March 1998

Quantum field theory is the framework in which the regnant theories of the electroweak and strong interactions, which together form the standard model, are formulated. Quantum electrodynamics (QED),… Expand

Ultraviolet Behavior of Non-Abelian Gauge Theories

- D. Gross, F. Wilczek
- Physics
- 25 June 1973

It is shown that a wide class of non-Abelian gauge theories have, up to calculable logarithmic corrections, free-field-theory asymptotic behavior. It is suggested that Bjorken scaling may be obtained… Expand

Geometric and renormalized entropy in conformal field theory

- Christoph F. E. Holzhey, F. Larsen, F. Wilczek
- Physics
- 18 March 1994

Abstract In statistical physics, useful notions of entropy are defined with respect to some coarse-graining procedure over a microscopic model. Here we consider some special problems that arise when… Expand

Fractional statistics and anyon superconductivity

- F. Wilczek, D. Rokhsar
- Physics
- 1 October 1990

The occurrence of fractional statistics has been discovered in more and more quantum field theory models, including some of the most geometrical and canonical ones. In a remarkable case, the… Expand

Asymptotically free gauge theories. I

- D. Gross, F. Wilczek
- Physics
- 15 November 1973

Asymptotically free gauge theories of the strong interactions are constructed and analyzed. The reasons for doing this are recounted, including a review of renormalization-group techniques and their… Expand

Geometric Phases in Physics

- F. Wilczek, A. Shapere
- Physics
- 1989

During the last few years, considerable interest has been focused on the phase that waves accumulate when the equations governing the waves vary slowly. The recent flurry of activity was set off by a… Expand

Problem of Strong $P$ and $T$ Invariance in the Presence of Instantons

- F. Wilczek
- Physics
- 30 January 1978

The requirement that P and T be approximately conserved in the color gauge theory of strong interactions without arbitrary adjustment of parameters is analyzed. Several possibilities are identified,… Expand

The Condensed matter physics of QCD

- K. Rajagopal, F. Wilczek
- Physics
- 27 November 2000

Important progress in understanding the behavior of hadronic matter at high density has been achieved recently, by adapting the techniques of condensed matter theory. At asymptotic densities, the… Expand

Self-interaction correction to black hole radiance

- Per Kraus, F. Wilczek
- Physics
- 2 August 1994

We consider the modification of the formulas for black hole radiation, due to the self-gravitation of the radiation. This is done by truncating the coupled particle-hole system to a small set of… Expand

Appearance of Gauge Structure in Simple Dynamical Systems

- F. Wilczek, A. Zee
- Physics
- 11 June 1984

Generalizing a construction of Berry and Simon, we show that non-Abelian gauge fields arise in the adiabatic development of simple quantum mechanical systems. Characteristics of the gauge fields are… Expand
