  • We explicitly construct parametrices for magnetic Schrödinger operators on R{sup d} and prove that they provide a complete small-t expansion for the corresponding heat kernel, both on and off the diagonal.
  • The relation between super-Virasoro anomaly and super-Weyl anomaly in N=1 NSR superstring coupled with 2D supergravity is investigated from the canonical theoretical viewpoint. The WZW action canceling the super-Virasoro anomaly is explicitly constructed. It is super-Weyl invariant but nonlocal functional of 2D supergravity. The nonlocality can be remedied by the super-Liouville action, which in turn recovers the super-Weyl anomaly. The final gravitational effective action turns out to be local but noncovariant super-Liouville action, describing the dynamical behavior of the super-Liouville fields. The BRST invariance of this approach is examined in the superconformal gauge and in the light-cone gauge. {copyright} 1997more » Academic Press, Inc.« less
  • We discuss the heat-kernel option in the new covariant-derivative regularization program. The exponential regularization is generally simpler and more systematic than the previously studied power-law regulators. As a result, for example, we are able to verify the vanishing gluon mass in all dimensions at once.
  • Symmetry group methods are applied to obtain all explicit group-invariant radial solutions to a class of semilinear Schrödinger equations in dimensions n ≠ 1. Both focusing and defocusing cases of a power nonlinearity are considered, including the special case of the pseudo-conformal power p = 4/n relevant for critical dynamics. The methods involve, first, reduction of the Schrödinger equations to group-invariant semilinear complex 2nd order ordinary differential equations (ODEs) with respect to an optimal set of one-dimensional point symmetry groups, and second, use of inherited symmetries, hidden symmetries, and conditional symmetries to solve each ODE by quadratures. Through Noether's theorem,more » all conservation laws arising from these point symmetry groups are listed. Some group-invariant solutions are found to exist for values of n other than just positive integers, and in such cases an alternative two-dimensional form of the Schrödinger equations involving an extra modulation term with a parameter m = 2−n ≠ 0 is discussed.« less
  • In this paper the authors generalize the relation of the Weyl-anomaly coefficients to renormalization-group functions, and the Curci-Paffuti relation to the case of two-dimensional {sigma} models on manifolds with boundary. The analysis is based on the use of minimal subtraction in a regularization with a dimensional cutoff. The renormalization-group function are different on and off the boundary. This explicit dependence on the position in two-dimensional space raises serious problems for a straightforward string interpretation of the model if field corresponding to excitations of both open and closed strings are involved.
