Small instantons in CP{sup 1} and CP{sup 2} sigma models
Abstract
The anomalous scaling behavior of the topological susceptibility {chi}{sub t} in twodimensional CP{sup N1} sigma models for N{<=}3 is studied using the overlap Dirac operator construction of the lattice topological charge density. The divergence of {chi}{sub t} in these models is traced to the presence of small instantons with a radius of order a(=lattice spacing), which are directly observed on the lattice. The observation of these small instantons provides detailed confirmation of Luescher's argument that such shortdistance excitations, with quantized topological charge, should be the dominant topological fluctuations in CP{sup 1} and CP{sup 2}, leading to a divergent topological susceptibility in the continuum limit. For the CP{sup N1} models with N>3 the topological susceptibility is observed to scale properly with the mass gap. These larger N models are not dominated by instantons, but rather by coherent, onedimensional regions of topological charge which can be interpreted as domain wall or Wilson line excitations and are analogous to Dbrane or 'Wilson bag' excitations in QCD. In Lorentz gauge, the small instantons and Wilson line excitations can be described, respectively, in terms of poles and cuts of an analytic gauge potential.

The behavior of Wilson loops with fractional charge is used to study the {theta} dependence of the free energy density {epsilon}({theta}) for the CP{sup 1}, CP{sup 5}, and CP{sup 9} sigma models in two spacetime dimensions. The function {epsilon}({theta}) is extracted from the area law for a Wilson loop of charge q={theta}/2{pi}. For CP{sup 1}, {epsilon}({theta}) is smooth in the region {theta}{approx_equal}{pi} and well described by a dilute instanton gas throughout the range 0<{theta}<2{pi}. For CP{sup 5} and CP{sup 9} the energy exhibits a clear cusp and evidence for discrete, degenerate vacua at {theta}={pi}, as expected from large N arguments.more »

The reactions of the dimolybdenum ..mu..alkylidene complexes M/sub 2/(..mu..CAr/sub 2/) (M = Mo(CO)/sub 2/Cp or Cp' (Cp' = C/sub 5/H/sub 4/Me); Ar/sub 2/ = phenyl, ptolyl (2a,b), or 2,2'biphenylenyl (2c)) with CO, H/sub 2/, Ar/sub 2/CN/sub 2/, R/sub 3/P, isonitriles, alkenes, and alkynes are reported. The kinetics of the reaction of M/sub 2/(..mu..CPh/sub 2/) with CO is interpreted in terms of the detachment of one coordinated phenyl group to provide a vacant coordination site prior to attack by CO. The differences in reactivity of 2a,b compared with 2c are explained on the basis of an EHMO analysis of the bondingmore »

Theoretical investigation of the a /sup 3/. sigma. /sup +//sub u/, A /sup 1/. sigma. /sup +//sub u/, c /sup 3/. sigma. /sup +//sub g/, and C /sup 1/. sigma. /sup +//sub g/ potential energy curves of He/sub 2/ and of He*(2 /sup 1/S, 2 /sup 3/S)+He scattering
Potential energy curves for the a /sup 3/..sigma../sup +//sub u/, A /sup 1/..sigma../sup +//sub u/, c /sup 3/..sigma../sup +//sub g/, and C /sup 1/..sigma../sup +//sub g/ states of He/sub 2/ are calculated using the MCSCF method. Comparison of the calculated dissociation energies and spectroscopic constants with the experimental values indicates that these are the most accurate theoretical curves reported to date for these states. The resulting curves are utilized to calculate the vibrational and rotational energy levels and to carry out He((2 /sup 1/S)+He(1 /sup 1/S) and He((2 /sup 3/S)+He(1 /sup 1/S) scattering calculations. 
Explicit forms of Baecklund transformations for the Grassmannian and CP/sup tsN/1 sigma models
A fairly wide class of classical solutions of the Euclidean twodimensional Grassmannian and CP/sup N/1 sigma models has been constructed explicitly and elementarily by the present author. Starting from these classical solutions we derive the explicit forms of the Baecklund transformations following Harnad et al. Properties of the Baecklund transformations for the Grassmannian models are discussed. In particular, a simple interpretation of the Baecklund transformations for the CP/sup N/1 model is obtained. Generalization of these results to the noncompact Grassmannian sigma models is straightforward.
