We present the analytical approach to scalar field theory on the fuzzy sphere which has been developed in arXiv:0706.2493 [hep-th]. This approach is based on considering a perturbative expansion of the kinetic term in the partition function. After truncating this expansion at second order, one arrives at a multitrace matrix model, which allows for an application of the saddle-point method. The results are in agreement with the numerical findings in the literature. 

The Multitrace Matrix Model of Scalar Field Theory on Fuzzy CP^n

A high-temperature expansion of scalar quantum field theory on fuzzy CP^n to third order in the inverse temperature is performed using group theoretical methods and this result is rewritten as a multitrace matrix model.

Fuzzy scalar field theory as matrix quantum mechanics

We study the phase diagram of scalar field theory on a three dimensional Euclidean spacetime whose spatial component is a fuzzy sphere. The corresponding model is an ordinary one-dimensional matrix

The phase diagram of scalar field theory on the fuzzy disc

A bstractUsing a recently developed bootstrapping method, we compute the phase diagram of scalar field theory on the fuzzy disc with quartic even potential. We find three distinct phases with second

Triple point of a scalar field theory on a fuzzy sphere

A bstractThe model of a scalar field with quartic self-interaction on the fuzzy sphere has three known phases: a uniformly ordered phase, a disordered phase and a non-uniformly ordered phase, the

Simulation of a scalar field on a fuzzy sphere

The ϕ4 real scalar field theory on a fuzzy sphere is studied numerically. We refine the phase diagram for this model where three distinct phases are known to exist: a uniformly ordered phase, a

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,

Complex (super)-matrix models with external sources and q-ensembles of Chern–Simons and ABJ(M) type

It is proved that the LSZ matrix model computes the probability of atypically large fluctuations in the Stieltjes–Wigert matrix model, which is a q-ensemble describing U(N) Chern–Simons theory on the three-sphere.

We demonstrate that the UV/IR mixing problems found recently for a scalar 4 theory on the fuzzy sphere are localized to tadpole diagrams and can be overcome by a suitable modification of the action.

A matrix phase for the ϕ4 scalar field on the fuzzy sphere

This work finds and discusses in detail a new phase called a matrix phase because the geometry of the fuzzy sphere, as expressed by the kinetic term, becomes negligible there and highlights a new aspect of UV-IR mixing.

Non-commutative euclidean scalar field theory is shown to have an eigenvalue sector which is dominated by a well-defined eigenvalue density, and can be described by a matrix model. This is
