  • 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 » been previously observed, is shown to be mainly due to strong short-distance correlations. The density of extended monopoles in local gauges is studied as a function of [beta] for monopoles of fixed physical size'' ([ital m]/[beta]=fixed); the degree of scale violation is found to decrease substantially as the monopole size is increased. The possibility therefore remains that long-distance properties of monopoles in local gauges may be relevant to continuum physics, such as confinement.« less
  • In this paper, the authors show, to all orders in perturbation theory, that the theory of charged scalars in 2 + 1 dimensions with a {phi}{sup 4} self-interaction coupled to Chern-Simons gauge fields is equivalent to a theory of self-interacting fermions with a {psi}, {psi}{sup 2} interaction.
  • Non-Abelian vortices of an SU(2) Chern-Simons-Higgs theory in 2+1 dimensions are constructed numerically. They represent natural counterparts of the U(1) solutions considered by Hong, Kim, and Pac, and by Jackiw and Weinberg. The Abelian embeddings are identified, for all values of the Higgs self-interaction strength {nu}, resulting in both attractive and repulsive phases. A detailed analysis of the properties of the solutions reveals the existence of a number of unexpected features. For a certain range of the parameter {nu}, it is shown that the non-Abelian vortices have lower energy than their topologically stable Abelian counterparts The angular momentum of thesemore » vortices is analyzed and it is found that unlike the Abelian ones, whose angular momentum and energy are unrelated, there is a nontrivial mass-spin relation of the non-Abelian vortices.« less

  • Using the path integral method for handling the anomaly problem under the comoving representation, we present a unified scheme for deriving the bosonization of fermion fields in (1+1) dimensions. The massless Thirring model with an external electric field, and the Gross-Neveu model with internal {ital SU}({ital N}) symmetry are discussed in some detail, as two examples, for Abelian and non-Abelian bosonization, respectively.
