Title: Functional determinant and Green's functions for a fermionic gauge theory on the disk

Abstract

We study a theory of Dirac fermions on a disk in the presence of an electromagnetic field. Using the heat-kernel technique we compute the functional determinant which results after decoupling the zero-flux gauge degrees of freedom from the fermions. We also compute the Green's functions of the remaining fermionic theory with the appropriate boundary conditions. Finally we analyze the coset model associated with this gauge theory and compute all its correlation functions.
