# Rigorous Solution of Strongly Coupled SO(N) Lattice Gauge Theory in the Large N Limit

@article{Chatterjee2019RigorousSO, title={Rigorous Solution of Strongly Coupled SO(N) Lattice Gauge Theory in the Large N Limit}, author={Sourav Chatterjee}, journal={Communications in Mathematical Physics}, year={2019}, volume={366}, pages={203-268} }

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.
