- We revisit the proof of equivalence of one loop expressions for fermion self-energy and vertex correction in light-front QED and Covariant QED at the Feynman diagram level and generalize, to all components, the proof of equivalence for the one loop vertex correction diagram which was presented earlier by us only for the $+$ component of $\Lambda^\mu$. We demonstrate, in the general case also, that the equivalence cannot be established without the third term in the three-term photon propagator in light cone gauge.
- Nov 30 2017 hep-th arXiv:1711.10952v3Computing polynomial form of the colored HOMFLY-PT for non-arborescent knots obtained from three or more strand braids is still an open problem. One of the efficient methods suggested for the three-strand braids relies on the eigenvalue hypothesis which uses the Yang-Baxter equation to express the answer through the eigenvalues of the ${\cal R}$-matrix. In this paper, we generalize the hypothesis to higher number of strands in the braid where commuting relations of non-neighbouring $\mathcal{R}$ matrices are also incorporated. By solving these equations, we determine the explicit form for $\mathcal{R}$-matrices and the inclusive Racah matrices in terms of braiding eigenvalues (for matrices of size up to 6 by 6). For comparison, we briefly discuss the highest weight method for four-strand braids carrying fundamental and symmetric rank two $SU_q(N)$ representation. Specifically, we present all the inclusive Racah matrices for representation $[2]$ and compare with the matrices obtained from eigenvalue hypothesis.
- We study the entanglement for a state on linked torus boundaries in $3d$ Chern-Simons theory with a generic gauge group and present the asymptotic bounds of Rényi entropy at two different limits: (i) large Chern-Simons coupling $k$, and (ii) large rank $r$ of the gauge group. These results show that the Rényi entropies cannot diverge faster than $\ln k$ and $\ln r$, respectively. We focus on torus links $T(2,2n)$ with topological linking number $n$. The Rényi entropy for these links shows a periodic structure in $n$ and vanishes whenever $n = 0 \text{ (mod } \textsf{p})$, where the integer $\textsf{p}$ is a function of coupling $k$ and rank $r$. We highlight that the refined Chern-Simons link invariants can remove such a periodic structure in $n$.
- Feb 22 2017 hep-th arXiv:1702.06316v3Tests of the integrality properties of a scalar operator in topological strings on a resolved conifold background or orientifold of conifold backgrounds have been performed for arborescent knots and some non-arborescent knots. The recent results on polynomials for those knots colored by SU(N) and SO(N) adjoint representations are useful to verify Marino's integrality conjecture up to two boxes in the Young diagram. In this paper, we review the salient aspects of the integrality properties and tabulate explicitly for an arborescent knot and a link. In our knotebook website, we have put these results for over 100 prime knots available in Rolfsen table and some links. The first application of the obtained results, an observation of the Gaussian distribution of the LMOV invariants is also reported.
- Arborescent knots are the ones which can be represented in terms of double fat graphs or equivalently as tree Feynman diagrams. This is the class of knots for which the present knowledge is enough for lifting topological description to the level of effective analytical formulas. The paper describes the origin and structure of the new tables of colored knot polynomials, which will be posted at the dedicated site. Even if formal expressions are known in terms of modular transformation matrices, the computation in finite time requires additional ideas. We use the "family" approach, and apply it to arborescent knots in the Rolfsen table by developing a Feynman diagram technique associated with an auxiliary matrix model field theory. Gauge invariance in this theory helps to provide meaning to Racah matrices in the case of non-trivial multiplicities and explains the need for peculiar sign prescriptions in the calculation of [21]-colored HOMFLY polynomials.
- Many knots and links in S^3 can be drawn as gluing of three manifolds with one or more four-punctured S^2 boundaries. We call these knot diagrams as double fat graphs whose invariants involve only the knowledge of the fusion and the braiding matrices of four-strand braids. Incorporating the properties of four-point conformal blocks in WZNW models, we conjecture colored HOMFLY polynomials for these double fat graphs where the color can be rectangular or non-rectangular representation. With the recent work of Gu-Jockers, the fusion matrices for the non-rectangular [21] representation, the first which involves multiplicity is known. We verify our conjecture by comparing with the [21] colored HOMFLY of many knots, obtained as closure of three braids. The conjectured form is computationally very effective leading to writing [21]-colored HOMFLY polynomials for many pretzel type knots and non-pretzel type knots. In particular, we find class of pretzel mutants which are distinguished and another class of mutants which cannot be distinguished by [21] representation. The difference between the [21]-colored HOMFLY of two mutants seems to have a general form, with A-dependence completely defined by the old conjecture due to Morton and Cromwell. In particular, we check it for an entire multi-parametric family of mutant knots evaluated using evolution method.
- We illustrate from the viewpoint of braiding operations on WZNW conformal blocks how colored HOMFLY polynomials with multiplicity structure can detect mutations. As an example, we explicitly evaluate the (2,1)-colored HOMFLY polynomials that distinguish a famous mutant pair, Kinoshita-Terasaka and Conway knot.
- Jun 20 2014 hep-th arXiv:1406.5002v1Using a two potential approach, dyon solutions have been found in the temporal and non-temporal gauges for a non-Abelian theory. Both the charges, electric and magnetic, of the temporal dyon solution are topological, while for the non-temporal case both charges are partially topological.
- Recently André Martin has proved a rigorous upper bound on the inelastic cross-section $\sigma_{inel}$ at high energy which is one-fourth of the known Froissart-Martin-Lukaszuk upper bound on $\sigma_{tot}$. Here we obtain an upper bound on $\sigma_{inel}$ in terms of $\sigma_{tot}$ and show that the Martin bound on $\sigma_{inel}$ is improved significantly with this added information.
- We recently constructed a causal quantum mechanics in 2 dim. phase space which is more realistic than the de Broglie-Bohm mechanics as it reproduces not just the position but also the momentum probability density of ordinary quantum theory. Here we present an even more ambitious construction in 2n dim. phase space. We conjecture that the causal Hamiltonian quantum mechanics presented here is `maximally realistic'. The positive definite phase space density reproduces as marginals the correct quantum probability densities of $n+1$ different complete commuting sets of observables (e.g. $\vec q$, $\vec p$ and $n-1$ other sets). In general the particle velocities do not coincide with the de Broglie-Bohm velocities.
- De Broglie and Bohm formulated a causal quantum mechanics with a phase space density whose integral over momentum reproduces the position probability density of usual statistical quantum theory. We propose a causal quantum theory with a joint probability distribution such that the separate probability distributions for position and momentum agree with usual quantum theory. Unlike the Wigner distribution the suggested distribution is positive definite and obeys the Liouville condition.
- Feb 07 1994 hep-th arXiv:hep-th/9402025v2Present quantum theory, which is statistical in nature, does not predict joint probability distribution of position and momentum because they are noncommuting. We propose a deterministic quantum theory which predicts a joint probability distribution such that the separate probability distributions for position and momentum agree with usual quantum theory. Unlike the Wigner distribution the suggested distribution is positive definite. The theory predicts a correlation between position and momentum in individual events.
