Perturbative renormalization of a non-Abelian Chern-Simons gauge theory is examined. It is demonstrated by explicit calculation that, in the pure ChernSimons theory, the beta-function for theâ€¦ (More)

We show that a lattice model for induced lattice QCD which was recently proposed by Kazakov and Migdal has a ZN gauge symmetry which, in the strong coupling phase, results in a local confinementâ€¦ (More)

The problem of computing the thermodynamic properties of a one-dimensional gas of particles which transform in the adjoint representation of the gauge group and interact through non-Abelian electricâ€¦ (More)

We examine the stability of ring-like configurations of N charges on a plane interacting through the potential V (z 1 ,. .. , z N) = |z i | 2 âˆ’ i<j ln |z i âˆ’ z j | 2. We interpret the equilibriumâ€¦ (More)

We examine the possibility of fermion mass generation in 2+1â€“dimensional gauge theory from the current algebra point of view. In our approach the critical behavior is governed by the fluctuations ofâ€¦ (More)
