    We review some recent results concerning the quantitative analysis of the universality classes of two-dimensional statistical models near their critical point. We also discuss the exact calculation of the two--point correlation functions of disorder operators in a free theory of complex bosonic and fermionic field, correlators ruled by a Painleve differential equation.Comment: 10 pages, JHEP Proceedings of the Workshop on Integrable Theories, Solitons and Duality, IFT-Unesp, Sao Paulo, Brasi

    Effective potentials and kink spectra in non-integrable perturbed conformal field theories

    Get PDF
    We analyze the evolution of the effective potential and the particle spectrum of two-parameter families of non-integrable quantum field theories. These theories are defined by deformations of conformal minimal models M_m by using the operators Phi_{1,3}, Phi_{1,2} and Phi_{2,1}. This study extends to all minimal models the analysis previously done for the classes of universality of the Ising, the Tricritical Ising and the RSOS models. We establish the symmetry and the duality properties of the various models also identifying the limiting theories that emerge when m goes to infinity.Comment: 30 pages, pdflatex,17 figures

    On the Operator Content of the Sinh-Gordon Model

    Full text link
    We classify the operator content of local hermitian scalar operators in the Sinh-Gordon model by means of independent solutions of the form-factor bootstrap equations. The corresponding linear space is organized into a tower-like structure of dimension nn for the form factors F2nF_{2n} and F2n−1F_{2n-1}. Analyzing the cluster property of the form factors, a particular class of these solutions can be identified with the matrix elements of the operators ekgϕe^{k g\phi}. We also present the complete expression of the form factors of the elementary field ϕ(x)\phi(x) and the trace of the energy-momentum tensor Θ(x)\Theta(x).Comment: ISAS/EP/93/42, to appear in Phys.

    Stress-Energy Tensor and Ultraviolet Behaviour in Massive Integrable Quantum Field Theories

    Full text link
    The short distance behaviour of massive integrable quantum field theories is analyzed in terms of the form factor approach. We show that the on-shell dynamics is compatible with different definitions of the stress-energy tensor TΌΜ(x)T_{\mu\nu}(x) of the theory. In terms of form factors, this is equivalent to having a possible non-zero matrix element F1F_1 of the trace of TΌΜT_{\mu\nu} on one-particle state. Each choice of F1F_1 induces a different scaling behaviour of the massive theory in the ultraviolet limit.Comment: 32 pages LATEX file (Three figures not included in the text) ISAS/EP/93/6

    Mapping between the Sinh-Gordon and Ising Models

    Full text link
    The SS-matrix of the Ising Model can be obtained as particular limit of the roaming trajectories associated to of the SS-matrix of the Sinh-Gordon model. Using the form factors of the Sinh-Gordon, we analyse the correspondence between the operators of the two theories.Comment: 10 pages, LATEX file, (two figures not included in the text, to be requested separately) IC/93/143, ISAS/EP/93/8

    Semiclassical Energy Levels of Sine-Gordon Model on a Strip with Dirichlet Boundary Conditions

    Full text link
    We derive analytic expressions of the semiclassical energy levels of Sine-Gordon model in a strip geometry with Dirichlet boundary condition at both edges. They are obtained by initially selecting the classical backgrounds relative to the vacuum or to the kink sectors, and then solving the Schodinger equations (of Lame' type) associated to the stability condition. Explicit formulas are presented for the classical solutions of both the vacuum and kink states and for the energy levels at arbitrary values of the size of the system. Their ultraviolet and infrared limits are also discussed.Comment: 14 pages, 7 figure

    1D Lieb-Liniger Bose Gas as Non-Relativistic Limit of the Sinh-Gordon Model

    Full text link
    The repulsive Lieb-Liniger model can be obtained as the non-relativistic limit of the Sinh-Gordon model: all physical quantities of the latter model (S-matrix, Lagrangian and operators) can be put in correspondence with those of the former. We use this mapping, together with the Thermodynamical Bethe Ansatz equations and the exact form factors of the Sinh-Gordon model, to set up a compact and general formalism for computing the expectation values of the Lieb-Liniger model both at zero and finite temperature. The computation of one-point correlators is thoroughly detailed and, when possible, compared with known results in the literature.Comment: published version, 27 pages, 10 figure
