Following the procedures by which O(N)-invariant real vector models and their large-N behavior have previously been solved, we extend similar techniques to the study of real symmetric N x N-matrix models with O(N)-invariant interactions. Proper extensions to N equal infinity are also established. While no 1/N-expansions are involved in our analysis, a brief comparison of our procedures with traditional 1/N-expansion procedures is given. 

Mixed Models: Combining incompatible scalar models in any space–time dimension

Traditionally, covariant scalar field theory models are either super renormalizable, strictly renormalizable, or nonrenormalizable. The goal of “Mixed Models” is to make sense of sums of these

Revisiting Canonical Quantization

Conventional canonical quantization procedures directly link various c-number and q-number quantities. Here, we advocate a different association of classical and quantum quantities that renders

The finite and large-N behaviors of independent-value matrix models

We investigate the finite and large N behaviors of independent-value O(N)-invariant matrix models. These are models defined with matrix-type fields and with no gradient term in their action. They are

The planar spectrum in U(N)-invariant quantum mechanics by Fock space methods: I. The bosonic case

Prompted by recent results on Susy-U(N)-invariant quantum mechanics in the large N limit by Veneziano and Wosiek, we have examined the planar spectrum in the full Hilbert space of U(N)-invariant

A Planar Diagram Theory for Strong Interactions

Green's Functions for Rotationally Symmetric Models

We discuss some conventional aspects of certain model theories based both on traditional field equations and on previous solutions obtained by unconventional means. We show that the conventional

Rotationally‐Symmetric Model Field Theories

A class of highly symmetric ,nonrelativistic, Euclidean invariant, model scalar field theories are examined assuming the existence of field and momentum operators that satisfy the canonical

Planar diagrams

We investigate the planar approximation to field theory through the limit of a large internal symmetry group. This yields an alternative and powerful method to count planar diagrams. Results are

Fock-space description of the 1/N/sub c/ expansion of quantum chromodynamics

We present a Fock-space formulation of the expansion of quantum chromodynamics in a power series in 1/N/sub c/, where N/sub c/ is the number of colors. We hope this formulation will aid spectrum

Enhanced quantization: a primer

Although classical mechanics and quantum mechanics are separate disciplines, we live in a world where Planck’s constant ℏ > 0, meaning that the classical and quantum world views must actually

Weak Correspondence Principle

The weak correspondence principle (WCP) for a scalar field states that the diagonal matrix elements G(f,g)≡〈f,g|G|f,g〉 of a quantum generator G necessarily have the form of the appropriate classical
