We investigate the Kosterlitz-Thouless transition for hexatic order on a fluctuating spherical surface of genus zero and derive a Coulomb gas Hamiltonian to describe it. In the Coulomb gas Hamiltonian, charge densities arises from disclinations and from Gaussian curvature. There is an interaction coupling the difference between these two densities, whose… CONTINUE READING
