Worldsheet Description of Planar Yang - Mills Theory ∗


We extend previous work by developing a worldsheet description of non-abelian gauge theory (Yang-Mills). This task requires the introduction of Grassmann variables on the world sheet analogous to those of the Neveu-Schwarz-Ramond formulation of string theory. A highlight of our construction is that once the three gluon vertices of Yang-Mills Feynman diagrams are given a worldsheet description, the worldsheet formalism automatically produces all of the quartic vertices.
