We discuss the statistical mechanics of a gas of gauged vortices in the canonical formalism. At critical self-coupling, and for low temperatures, it has been argued that the configuration space for vortex dynamics in each topological class of the Abelian Higgs model approximately truncates to a finite-dimensional moduli space with a Kahler structure. For the case where the vortices live on a 2-sphere, we explain how localization formulae on the moduli spaces can be used to compute exactly the…

Abstract We provide evidence for conjectural dualities between nonrelativistic Chern-Simons-matter theories and theories of (fractional, nonAbelian) quantum Hall fluids in 2 + 1 dimensions. At low

Dynamics of Abelian Vortices Without Common Zeros in the Adiabatic Limit

On a smooth line bundle L over a compact Kähler Riemann surface Σ, we study the family of vortex equations with a parameter s. For each $${s \in [1,\infty]}$$s∈[1,∞] , we invoke techniques in Bradlow
