|Chern–Simons invariant 5.1. Preliminaries. In the late 1980s, E. Witten |
considered a quantum field theory whose Lagrangian is the Chern–Simons
functional. He argued that the Chern–Simons path integral on a (closed) 3–
manifold with an ...
|B. Scale Invariance in Quantized Planar Models The relationship between the |
nonrelativistic self-dual Chern- Simons ... we must first address an unexpected
feature of planar quantum mechanical systems with delta-function interactions.
|In this chapter we deal with topological invariants obtained from the perturbative |
expansion of the partition function of the Chern- Simons functional as the level k
tends to infinity. As the coefficients of the expansion of the Jones polynomial we ...
|One of the most remarkable features of the Abelian Chern-Simons theory is that |
the expectation value (1.17) is invariant ... STT J (1.20) The functional (1.20) is
invariant under (Abelian) gauge transformations acting on the vector field A^(x).
|Semiclassical Approximation in Chern-Simons Gauge Theory David H. Adams |
ABSTRACT The semiclassical approximation for the partition function in Chern-
Simons gauge theory is derived using the invariant integration method. Volume
|Chern–Simons theory is a classical gauge field theory formulated on an odd- |
dimensional manifold. ... It can be shown that the Wess–Zumino functional is
integer-valued and hence if the Chern–Simons coupling constant k is taken to be
|In contrast the bulk partition function of AdSz string theory is the modular-|
invariant partition function of the dual CFT on the boundary. This is a puzzle
because AdSz string theory formally reduces to pure Chern-Simons theory at
|A key point is that our gauge group is not simply connected, whereas this is an essential assumption in Beasley and Witten's work.|
|We obtain the Chern-Simons results using three different techniques.|
|We discuss C. Taubes' gauge-theoretical definition of the Casson invariant as (|
roughly) the Euler number of the gradient field of the Chern-Simons function. The
Chern-Simons function plays a central role in modern understanding of
