# Gauged vortices in a background

@article{Romo2005GaugedVI, title={Gauged vortices in a background}, author={Nuno M. Rom{\~a}o}, journal={Journal of Physics A}, year={2005}, volume={38}, pages={9127-9144} }

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…
