The behavior of ten-dimensional superstrings at high temperatures is studied by use of the microcanonical ensemble. We focus on closed superstring theories. The massive string excitations alone have… Expand

Zero Temperature Chiral Phase Transition in SU(N) Gauge Theories.

- Appelquist, Terning, Wijewardhana
- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 23 February 1996

We investigate the zero temperature chiral phase transition in an SU({ital N}) gauge theory as the number of fermions {ital N}{sub {ital f}} is varied. We argue that there exists a critical number of… Expand

- 25 August 1986

Dynamical chiral-symmetry breaking in asymptotically free theories with a slowly running coupling is analyzed. When the confinement scale ..lambda.. is much less than the cutoff M beyond which the… Expand

Dynamical violation of parity and chiral symmetry in three-dimensional four-Fermi theory.

- Semenoff, Wijewardhana
- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review. D, Particles and fields
- 15 February 1992

We study dynamical symmetry breaking in (2+1)-dimensional quantum electrodynamics with four-Fermi couplings. Using the large-{ital N} expansion and an effective potential method we show that the… Expand

(2+1)-dimensional QED and a novel phase transition.

- Appelquist, Terning, Wijewardhana
- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 18 February 1994

We investigate the chiral phase transition in (2+1)-dimensional QED. Previous studies of symmetry breaking have found that symmetry breaking ceases to occur when the number of fermion flavors exceeds… Expand

Chiral hierarchies and chiral perturbations in technicolor theories.

- Appelquist, Wijewardhana
- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review. D, Particles and fields
- 15 January 1987

It is shown that in an asymptotically free theory a slowly running coupling enhances the value of the appropriately defined fermion condensate while keeping the Goldstone-boson decay constant… Expand

Numerical studies of enhanced chiral condensates.

- Appelquist, Carrier, Wijewardhana, Zheng
- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 21 March 1988

The results of a systematic numerical study of spontaneous chiral-symmetry breaking in gauge theories with slowly running couplings are summarized. For a range of such theories, the chiral condensate… Expand
