The integrable 1+1-dimensional SU(2) principal chiral model (PCM) serves as a toy-model for 3+1-dimensional Yang-Mills theory as it is asymptotically free and displays a mass gap. Interestingly, the PCM is 'pseudodual' to a scalar field theory introduced by Zakharov and Mikhailov and Nappi that is strongly coupled in the ultraviolet and could serve as a toy-model for non-perturbative properties of theories with a Landau pole. Unlike the 'Euclidean' current algebra of the PCM, its pseudodual is… Expand

Invariant tori, action-angle variables, and phase space structure of the Rajeev-Ranken model
We study the classical Rajeev-Ranken model, a Hamiltonian system with three degrees of freedom describing nonlinear continuous waves in a 1+1-dimensional nilpotent scalar field theory pseudodual toExpand


Relativistically invariant two-dimensional models of field theory which are integrable by means of the inverse scattering problem method
A method is proposed for deriving and classifying relativistically invariant integrable systems that are sufficiently general to encompass all presently known two-dimensional solvable models, and forExpand
Integrability of the principal chiral field model in 1 + 1 dimension
The quantum inverse scattering method is used to solve model of the principal chiral field in 1 + 1 dimension. A different approach based on fermionization was proposed before by A. M. Polyakov andExpand
Sigma Model Lagrangian for the Heisenberg Group
Abstract We study the Lagrangian for a sigma model based on the non-compact Heisenberg group. A unique feature of this model—unlike the case for compact Lie groups—is that the Lagrangian has to beExpand
Highly nonlinear wave solutions in a dual to the chiral model
We consider a two-dimensional scalar field theory with a nilpotent current algebra, which is dual to the Principal Chiral Model. The quantum theory is renormalizable and not asymptotically free: theExpand
Pohlmeyer reduction of AdS5×S5 superstring sigma model
Abstract Motivated by a desire to find a useful 2d Lorentz-invariant reformulation of the AdS 5 × S 5 superstring world-sheet theory in terms of physical degrees of freedom we construct theExpand
All-loop correlators of integrable λ-deformed σ-models
We compute the 2- and 3-point functions of currents and primary fields of λ-deformed integrable σ -models characterized also by an integer k. Our results apply for any semisimple group G, for allExpand
Factorized S-matrices in two dimensions as the exact solutions of certain relativistic quantum field theory models
Abstract The general properties of the factorized S-matrix in two-dimensional space-time are considered. The relation between the factorization property of the scattering theory and the infiniteExpand

The conventional algorithm is refined to more efficiently produce the nonlocal symmetries of the pseudodual chiral model, and the complete local current algebra for the Pseudodual theory is discussed. Expand
On the massless tree-level S-matrix in 2d sigma models
Motivated by the search for new integrable string models, we study the properties of massless tree-level S-matrices for 2d sigma models expanded near the trivial vacuum. We find that, in contrast toExpand
Pseudoduality in sigma models
We revisit classical “on shell” duality, i.e., pseudoduality, in two-dimensional conformally invariant classical sigma models and find some new interesting results. We show that any two sigma modelsExpand
