The main result of this paper is a rigorous computation of Wilson loop expectations in strongly coupled SO(N) lattice gauge theory in the large N limit, in any dimension. The formula appears as an absolutely convergent sum over trajectories in a kind of string theory on the lattice, demonstrating an explicit gauge-string duality. The generality of the proof technique may allow it to be extended other gauge groups. 

Wilson Loops in Ising Lattice Gauge Theory

Wilson loop expectation in 4D $$\mathbb {Z}_2$$ Z 2 lattice gauge theory is computed to leading order in the weak coupling regime. This is the first example of a rigorous theoretical calculation of

A new derivation of the finite $N$ master loop equation for lattice Yang-Mills

We give a new derivation of the finite N master loop equation for lattice Yang-Mills theory with structure group SO(N), U(N) or SU(N). The SO(N) case was initially proved by Chatterjee in [Cha19a],

SO(N) Lattice Gauge Theory, planar and beyond

Lattice gauge theories have been studied in the physics literature as discrete approximations to quantum Yang‐Mills theory for a long time. Primary statistics of interest in these models are

Large N scaling and factorization in SU(N) Yang–Mills gauge theory

The large N limit of SU(N )gauge theories is well understood in perturbation theory. Also non-perturbative lattice studies have yielded important positive evidence that ’t Hooft’s predictions are

Chern–Simons–Schrödinger theory on a one-dimensional lattice

We propose a gauge-invariant system of the Chern–Simons–Schrödinger type on a one-dimensional lattice. By using the spatial gauge condition, we prove local and global well-posedness of the

In this Review, we review some recent rigorous results on large N problems in quantum field theory, stochastic quantization, and singular stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs) and their

Large N limit of Yang-Mills partition function and Wilson loops on compact surfaces

We compute the large N limit of several objects related to the two-dimensional Euclidean Yang–Mills measure on compact connected orientable surfaces Σ of genus g ≥ 1 with a structure group taken

A stochastic analysis approach to lattice Yang--Mills at strong coupling

The variational problem and background fields in renormalization group method for lattice gauge theories

We consider the action of a lattice gauge theory on a space of regular gauge field configurations with fixed averages, and we prove that there exists a minimum of this action. The minimum is unique

Ultraviolet stability of three-dimensional lattice pure gauge field theories

We prove the ultraviolet stability for three-dimensional lattice gauge field theories. We consider only the Wilson lattice approximation for pure Yang-Mills field theories. The proof is based on

We study four-dimensional pure gauge field theories by the renormalization group approach. The analysis is restricted to small field approximation. In this region we construct a sequence of localized

We present Monte Carlo evidence of a first-order phase transition in four-dimensional SO(3) lattice gauge theory. This result stands in sharp contrast to the known single-phase structure of the
