We point out that the leading infrared singular terms in the effective actions of noncommutative gauge theories arising from nonplanar loop diagrams have a natural interpretation in terms of the matrix model (operator) formulation of these theories. In this formulation (for maximal spatial noncommutativity), noncommutative space arises as a configuration of an infinite number of D-particles. We show that the IR singular terms correspond to instantaneous linear potentials between these D… CONTINUE READING
