  • The properties of the structure functions calculated in the leading log approximation are compared for all the supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories and QCD. The cases x-italic<<1 and 1-x-italic<<1 are discussed along with the second moments of the structure functions.
  • We calculate the full order-g/sup 2/ corrections to the coefficient functions which determine the Q/sup 2/ dependence of the moments of deep-inelastic structure functions. The calculation is performed in the minimal-subtraction scheme of 't Hooft. The results are combined with the recent two-loop calculations of anomalous dimensions by Floratos, Ross, and Sachrajda to give the full g-bar/sup 2/ corrections to the leading order of asymptotic freedom. We present results for C/sub n/(1,g-bar/sup 2/) relevant for electroproduction and neutrino reactions for both nonsinglet and singlet combinations of the structure functions. Phenomenological consequences of the full g-bar/sup 2/ corrections to the nonsingletmore » structure function are discussed. The corrections to the Gross--Llewellyn Smith and Bjorken sum rules are estimated to be of the order of 15%.« less
  • The coupling of conformal field theories to 2-d gravity may be studied in the conformal gauge. As an application, the results of Knizhnik, Polyakov and Zamolodchikov for the scaling dimensions of conformal fields are derived in a simple way. Their conjecture for the susceptibility exponent ..gamma.. of strings is proven and extended to arbitrary genus surfaces. The result agrees with exact results from random lattice models.
  • We discuss in the planar approximation the effect of double-trace deformations on conformal field theories. We show that this large class of models posses a conformal window describing a nontrivial flow between two fixed points of the renormalization group and reveal the presence of a resonance which we associate to the remnant of a dilaton pole. As the conformal window shrinks to zero measure, the theory undergoes a conformal phase transition separating a symmetric from a nonsymmetric phase. The recently conjectured strongly coupled branch of nonsupersymmetric, non-Abelian gauge theories with a large number of flavors is analyzed in light ofmore » these results, and a model for the strong branch is proposed. Some phenomenological implications in the context of unparticle physics are also emphasized.« less
