Four Chapters on Low-Dimensional Gauge Theories

This is the written version of a set of four lectures given at the CIB in Lausanne in April 2015. The aim of these lectures was to present some of the mathematical-physical ideas underlying

The $1/N$ expansion for SO(N) lattice gauge theory at strong coupling

The $1/N$ expansion is an asymptotic series expansion for certain quantities in large-$N$ lattice gauge theories. This article gives a rigorous formulation and proof of the $1/N$ expansion for Wilson

Wilson loop expectations in $SU(N)$ lattice gauge theory

This article gives a rigorous formulation and proof of the $1/N$ expansion for Wilson loop expectations in strongly coupled $SU(N)$ lattice gauge theory in any dimension. The coefficients of the

The rigorous construction of quantum Yang-Mills theories, especially in dimension four, is one of the central open problems of mathematical physics. Construction of Euclidean Yang-Mills theories is

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

. We develop a new stochastic analysis approach to the lattice Yang–Mills model at strong coupling in any dimension d > 1, with t’ Hooft scaling βN for the inverse coupling strength. We study their

Canonical quantization of 1+1-dimensional Yang-Mills theory: An operator-algebraic approach

We present a mathematically rigorous canonical quantization of Yang-Mills theory in 1+1 dimensions (YM$_{1+1}$) by operator-algebraic methods. The latter are based on Hamiltonian lattice gauge theory

Yang–Mills Measure and the Master Field on the Sphere

We study the Yang–Mills measure on the sphere with unitary structure group. In the limit where the structure group has high dimension, we show that the traces of loop holonomies converge in

We introduce a space of distributional 1-forms $$\Omega ^1_\alpha $$Ωα1 on the torus $$\mathbf {T}^2$$T2 for which holonomies along axis paths are well-defined and induce Hölder continuous functions

What is a random surface?

Given 2n unit equilateral triangles, there are finitely many ways to glue each edge to a partner. We obtain a random sphere-homeomorphic surface by sampling uniformly from the gluings that produce a

A Functional Integral Approaches to the Makeenko–Migdal Equations

Makeenko and Migdal (1979) gave heuristic identities involving the expectation of the product of two Wilson loop functionals associated to splitting a single loop at a self-intersection point.



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

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

The U(1) Higgs model

By using rigorous renormalization group methods we construct the continuum limit of the finite-volume lattice U(1) Higgs model in two and three dimensions. The method relies on a proof of the

Convergent renormalization expansions for lattice gauge theories

In this paper we introduce an inductive description of the complete effective densities including large field domains, and we show that the renormalization transformations preserve the form of the

Propagators and renormalization transformations for lattice gauge theories. I

Lattice gauge theories may be looked at as perturbations of the theory of a vector field with a Gaussian action. We study this theory here and in following papers obtaining crucial results for

On the construction of quantized gauge fields

In this paper the construction of the two-dimensional abelian Higgs model begun in two earlier articles is completed. First we show how to remove the remaining ultraviolet cutoff on the gauge field,

Exact computation of loop averages in two-dimensional Yang-Mills theory

We present an explicit algorithm that allows the exact computation of all nonlocal gauge-invariant correlation functions in two-dimensional Yang-Mills theory. Explicit expressions are given for the

Renormalization group approach to lattice gauge field theories

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

Large field renormalization. I. The basic step of the ℝ operation

We construct the renormalization operation of the expressions connected with the large field regions. This operation, denoted by ℝ, removes the main obstacle to prove the ultraviolet stability of
