Two-dimensional Quantum Field Theory , examples and applications

  title={Two-dimensional Quantum Field Theory , examples and applications},
  author={E. Abdalla},
The main principles of two-dimensional quantum field theories, in particular two-dimensional QCD and gravity are reviewed. We study non-perturbative aspects of these theories which make them particularly valuable for testing ideas of four-dimensional quantum field theory. The dynamics of confinement and theta vacuum are explained by using the non-perturbative methods developed in two dimensions. We describe in detail how the effective action of string theory in non-critical dimensions can be… CONTINUE READING
