Conformal theory of gauge strings. The Abelian theory
The gauge strings Psi(x1,x2) = psi(x1)exp (ie /sup x//sup =//sub x//sub =/dx/sub /A/sub /) x psibar(x2) are investigated in conformally invariant Euclidean QED. The transformation properties of such objects are determined and conformally invariant threepoint functions which include Psi(x1, x2) are defined. The invariance condition for the expectation value leads to a nontrivial consistency criterion for the conformal theory. It is proved that this criterion is satisfied by the solution found in this paper. Renormalized dynamical equations are obtained for expectation values involving Psi(x1, x2). A consequence of these equations is the fact that the scale dimension of the operatormore » 
Gauge fixing and extended Abelian monopoles in SU(2) gauge theory in 2+1 dimensions
Extended Abelian monopoles are investigated in SU(2) lattice gauge theory in three dimensions. Monopoles are computed by Abelian projection in several gauges, including the maximal Abelian gauge. The number [ital N][sub [ital m]] of extended monopoles in a cube of size [ital m][sup 3] (in lattice units) is defined as the number of elementary (1[sup 3]) monopoles minus antimonopoles in the cube ([ital m]=1,2, . . .). The distribution of 1[sup 3] monopoles in the nonlocal maximal Abelian gauge is shown to be essentially random, while nonscaling of the density of 1[sup 3] monopoles in some local gauges, which hasmore » 
Crossing symmetry and modular invariance in conformal field theory and S duality in gauge theory
In this paper, we explore the relation between crossing symmetry and modular invariance in conformal field theory and S duality in gauge theory. It is shown that partition functions of different S dual theories of N=2 SU(2) gauge theory with four fundamentals can be derived from the crossing symmetry of the Liouville fourpoint function. We also show that the partition function of N=4 SU(2) gauge theory can be derived from the Liouville partition function on torus.
