Abstract

Abelian Chern-Simons theory as the strong large-mass limit of topologically massive abelian gauge theory: the Wilson loop We show that the renormalized vacuum expectation value of the Wilson loop for topologically massive abelian gauge theory in IR 3 can be defined so that its large-mass limit be the renormalized vacuum expectation value of the Wilson loop for abelian Chern-Simons theory also in IR 3 .
