For the special case of compact QED in (2+1) dimensions, we calculate the non-Gaussian vacuum wave-functional to second order in the monopole fugacity and obtain the effective photon mass. Our method presents some hope for understanding the connection between variational and systematic approaches to understanding the non-perturbative wave-functional.

Probing the ground state in gauge theories

We consider two very different models of the flux tube linking two heavy quarks: a string linking the matter fields and a Coulombic description of two separately gauge invariant charges. We compare
