A Chern-Simons theory view of noncommutative scalar field theory

We show that a version of Abelian gauge theory on $\mathbb{R}^3_\lambda $, when restricted to a single fuzzy sphere, reduces in the large $N$ limit to the Langmann-Szabo-Zarembo (LSZ) matrix model, which originally emerges in the study of scalar field theory on the Moyal plane. We then prove that the LSZ matrix model is actually equivalent to the matrix model of $U(N)$ Chern-Simons theory on $\mathbb{S}^3$. The correspondence holds in a generalized sense: depending on the spectra of the two… 


Quantum gauge theories on noncommutative three-dimensional space
We consider a class of gauge invariant models on the noncommutative space $\mathbb{R}^3_\lambda$, a deformation of $\mathbb{R}^3$. Focusing on massless models with no linear $A_i$ dependence, we
Unitary Chern-Simons matrix model and the Villain lattice action
We use the Villain approximation to show that the Gross-Witten model, in the weak- and strong-coupling limits, is related to the unitary matrix model that describes U(N) Chern-Simons theory on S^3.
Non-Abelian localization for Chern-Simons theory
We reconsider Chern-Simons gauge theory on a Seifert manifold M (the total space of a nontrivial circle bundle over a Riemann surface). When M is a Seifert manifold, Lawrence and Rozansky have shown
Noncommutative field theories on R 3 : towards UV/IR mixing freedom
We consider the noncommutative space R 3 , a deformation of the algebra of functions on R 3 which yields a "foliation" of R 3 into fuzzy spheres. We first construct a natural matrix base adapted to R
Chern–Simons Theory, Matrix Models, and Topological Strings
This book is a find. Marino meets the challenge of filling in less than 200 pages the need for an accessible review of topological gauge / gravity duality. He is one of the pioneers of the subject
String theory and noncommutative geometry
We extend earlier ideas about the appearance of noncommutative geometry in string theory with a nonzero B-field. We identify a limit in which the entire string dynamics is described by a minimally
Chern-Simons theory on S1-bundles: abelianisation and q-deformed Yang-Mills theory
We study Chern-Simons theory on 3-manifolds M that are circle-bundles over 2-dimensional surfaces Σ and show that the method of Abelianisation, previously employed for trivial bundles Σ × S1, can be
Linking loops in ABJM and refined theory
A bstractWe consider the link average of the half-BPS Wilson loop operators in N=6$$ \mathcal{N}=6 $$ superconformal Chern-Simons-matter theory, which is called ABJM theory. We show that this loop
Worldsheet derivation of a large N duality
Exact results for Wilson loops in superconformal Chern-Simons theories with matter
We use localization techniques to compute the expectation values of supersymmetric Wilson loops in Chern-Simons theories with matter. We find the path-integral reduces to a non-Gaussian matrix model.
