The P((f))2 Quantum F i e l d Theory The subjects of axiomatic and constructive quantum f i e l d theory arose as an attempt to put quantum f i e l d theory on a sound mathematical foundation. The idea, which took shape i n the 1950's, was to write down a p h y s i c a l l y motivated l i s t of properties or axioms that a mathematically well-defined quantum f i e l d theory would be expected to s a t i s f y , and then look f o r examples s a t i s f y i n g the p r o p e r t i e s . One of the f i r s t sets of axioms [WG 64], the Garding-Wightman axioms, involves operator-valued tempered d i s t r i b u t i o n s (the f i e l d s ) a c t i n g on a H i l b e r t space, which transform i n an appropriate way under Lorentz transformations. An equivalent set of axioms i s formulated i n terms of vacuum expectation values of the f i e l d [SW 78]. When the axioms were f i r s t introduced the only models known to s a t i s f y them were free f i e l d s . I t was r e a l i z e d that the t e c h n i c a l problems involved i n the construction of i n t e r a c t i n g models were les s imposing when the dimension of space-time was reduced from four to three or two. Work began on the construction of two-dimensional models, with the hope that a technology could be developed that would be useful i n attacking the p h y s i c a l l y relevant case of four dimensions. A b r i e f account of early progress i n the construction of i n t e r a c t i n g two-dimensional models can be found i n the Appendix to [SW 78]. In the early 1970's a new strategy began to emerge, that of a n a l y t i c a l l y continuing the vacuum expectation values from r e a l to imaginary time. This new strategy was c a l l e d the Euclidean strategy because the replacement of t by i t changes the Minkowski metric to the Euclidean metric. In [OS 73] 2 conditions were given on the Schwinger functions (the a n a l y t i c continuations of the vacuum expectation values) which are equivalent to the Garding-Wightman axioms, i n the sense that existence of a family of d i s t r i b u t i o n s s a t i s f y i n g the Osterwalder-Schrader axioms guarantees the existence of a unique f i e l d theory s a t i s f y i n g the Garding-Wightman axioms, and vice-versa. Motivated by ideas of Feynman [Feyn H 65] the attempt since t h i s time to construct d-dimensional s c a l a r boson f i e l d theories has been centred on obtaining Schwinger functions s a t i s f y i n g the Osterwalder-Schrader axioms as the moments of a measure on the space S ( R )- of tempered d i s t r i b u t i o n s . In [F 74] a set of axioms (the POS, or p r o b a b i l i s t i c Osterwalder-Schrader axioms) was introduced f o r p r o b a b i l i t y measures on S'( R d) which guarantees that the moments of such a measure s a t i s f y the Osterwalder-Schrader axioms. The converse need not be true: the Osterwalder-Schrader axioms do not imply that the Schwinger functions are the moments of a measure. A theory whose Schwinger functions are the moments of a measure i s said to be Nelson-Symanzik p o s i t i v e . So f a r each of the several models constructed i n two and three dimensions s a t i s f y the stronger axioms. No i n t e r a c t i n g models have been constructed yet i n four dimensions. To state the POS axioms we introduce some d e f i n i t i o n s and notation. d d Denote the Schwartz space of real-valued t e s t functions on R by S( R ) , the space of continuous l i n e a r functionals on S( R d) by S'( R d) , and the action of <$> e S' ( R d) on f e S( R d) by <Mf) • Although not every i d <f> e S' ( R ) i s a function, we follow common usage and oc c a s i o n a l l y write 4>(f) = /<t> (x)f (x)dx • Let I denote the a-algebra of subsets of S'( R d) generated by the Borel c y l i n d e r sets, i . e . , sets of the form {<(. e 5' ( R d) : (<Mf.) , . ..f<Mf )) e ^} where f. e S( R d) ( i = l,...,n) , I n i 3 A is a Borel subset of R , and n can be any positive integer. Denote by £ + the o-algebra generated by sets of the same form but with the f supported in {x £ Rd : x^ > 0} , and l e t E denote the Euclidean group of translations, rotations and reflections of R E a c t s on S" as follows. For y e. E and f e S l e t (yf)(x) = f(y~ ^ x ) and -1, Define 6 e E by 6 ^ , — = (x^ ' X d-1' X d ) (Y+) (f) = +(Y f) x u x u—X <-l Following [FS 77] the POS Axioms for probability measures v on (S '( R d), are the following: POS 1: v i s invariant under E . POS 2: Fo6 F dv > 0 for a l l Y -measureable functions F on S '( R ) L+ POS 3: There i s a norm ||J • || continuous on S ' ( Rd) such that e ^ ^ d v i s uniformly bounded and continuous in the norm on {f e Si Rd) : |||f 1} POS 4: The action of the time-translation subgroup T is ergodic on (S ' ( Rd) , I, dv) . That i s , for a l l A e L ' (dv) and <j> e S ' ( Rd) , t lim >^ t - x » A(x 4>)ds = s A dv POS 1 embodies the requirement that the real time f i e l d theory be Lorentz covariant. POS 2 gives a positive definite inner product on the Hilbert space of states of the theory. The third axiom is a regularity condition and guarantees that the moments of dv exist. Finally, POS 4 is equivalent to uniqueness of the vacuum. The question of whether or not POS 4 is satisfied is closely connected with the study of phase transitions. The simplest example of a measure satisfying a l l the POS axioms is the 2 _ 1 Gaussian measure with mean zero and covariance C = (-A + m ) , where A 4 i s the Laplacian on R and m > 0 . We s h a l l denote t h i s measure by du^ or du „ depending on the context. I t i s the unique measure on ( S ' ( R d ) , I) whose Fourier transform i s i ^ t f ) ^ 2 d e d u c = e L (R ) ; the existence of t h i s measure i n guaranteed by Minlos' Theorem [GV IV 64, p. 3 5 0 ] . The Gaussian measure du^ i s the s t a r t i n g p o i n t f o r the construction of measures corresponding to two-dimensional i n t e r a c t i n g s c a l a r boson f i e l d s , namely the P (<}>) models. These models describe a s c a l a r boson f i e l d i n two dimensions with mass m and a polynomial s e l f - i n t e r a c t i o n , and give the quantization of the c l a s s i c a l f i e l d theory with (Euclidean) Lagrangian density L(<f>(x), V<J> (x)) = j(V<J> (x) ) 2 + j m2<}> (x) 2 + P (<)> (x)) . Suppose P i s a polynomial on R which i s semibounded (bounded below) and l e t A be a square centred at the o r i g i n with sides p a r a l l e l to the coordinate axes. Set :P(* (x) ) : Ddx B e d y c B d v A f P = • S - ( i . i ) :P (<J>(x) ) : dx C B B B 2 ~ ^" B where C = (-A + m ) and A i s the Laplacian with B-boundary conditions on 3A . B may be p e r i o d i c , free, or D i r i c h l e t f o r example; a p a r t i c u l a r choice i s often preferred for t e c h n i c a l reasons. The Wick dots : : n i n d i c a t e that P has been normal ordered with respect to C C a B B and are defined i n §2.2. One then attempts to show that dv approaches a A , P 2 l i m i t as A + R and that the l i m i t i n g measure s a t i s f i e s POS 1-4. To state the r e s u l t of [FS 77] concerning the existence of these l i m i t s i t i s necessary to introduce the pressure i n an external f i e l d y , defined by a (u) = l i m -r-jk- &n A+R :P (<j))-y<J>: A C B dy (1.2) C B Here |A| i s the volume of A and we have dropped the dummy va r i a b l e x from the i n t e r a c t i o n . I t i s shown i n [GRS 76] that the l i m i t i n equation (1.2) e x i s t s and i s independent of the choice of B f o r a wide cla s s of boundary conditions. I t i s an easy consequence of Holder's i n e q u a l i t y that a i s convex. In [FS 77] i t i s shown that a i s i n f a c t s t r i c t l y convex. From convexity i t follows that the d e r i v a t i v e Da(y) e x i s t s f o r a l l but countably many u , and the r i g h t and l e f t d e r i v a t i v e s 0*01 (y) e x i s t f o r a l l y • Let P y ( x ) = P(x) - yx . F r o h l i c h and Simon prove the following theorem i n [FS 77] . + - B Theorem 1.1: I f D a(y) = D a(y) then the measures dv given by —————— I\ * XT 2 V eqn. (1.1) converge to the same l i m i t dv p as A + R (B = free, p e r i o d i c , y D i r i c h l e t ) i n the sense of convergence of Fourier transforms, and the measure dv s a t i s f i e s POS 1-4. • P y + More generally, f o r any y they construct two measures dv p y corresponding to the i n t e r a c t i o n P^ which s a t i s f y POS 1-4, and are equal i f + - ± and only i f D a(y) = D a(y) , i n which case dv p = dv p . The existence of y y a y f o r which dv p ^ dv p corresponds to the existence of a phase y y t r a n s i t i o n f o r the theory. Phase t r a n s i t i o n s are discussed i n the following s e c t i o n . 6 §2. Phase Tr a n s i t i o n s In [FS 77] i t i s shown that D +a(y) <j> ( 0)dv p for a l l y e R y (2.1) where the one-point 4>(0)dVj, i s the number s a t i s f y i n g y <Mf)dv_ (f)(0) dv" f(x)dx for a l l f e S( R ) . Such a number u J e x i s t s by t r a n s l a t i o n invariance of dv p . When a i s d i f f e r e n t i a b l e at y eqn.

I f a i s not d i f f e r e n t i a b l e at a point y^ then <t>(0)dvp ? y 0 <M0)dv and so (|>(0)dvp i s discontinuous at y Q . When t h i s happens i t i s s a i d that there i s a phase t r a n s i t i o n at y^ , because a continuous change i n the parameter y r e s u l t s i n a discontinuous change i n the theory. A number of r e s u l t s have been obtained i n the l a s t ten years concerning the existence of phase t r a n s i t i o n s f o r various polynomials. In [SG 73] i t was shown that f o r P(x) = ax^ - bx 2 with a > 0 and b e R , a(y) has an a n a l y t i c extension to the complement of the imaginary axis and hence a phase t r a n s i t i o n can only occur f o r y = 0 . I t was shown i n [GJS 75] that f o r some values of a and b a phase t r a n s i t i o n does occur at y = 0 , and the i n d i v i d u a l phases were studied i n [GJS 76] using a low temperature c l u s t e r expansion. Low temperature expansions were used i n Cl 81] to obtain d e t a i l e d information about multi-phase theories, where d i f f e r e n t phases are obtained by varying not only the external f i e l d but also the other c o e f f i c i e n t s of P . 7 There i s a c l a s s i c a l i n t u i t i o n at work i n [GJS 76] and [ i 81] which we 1 2 2 now describe. Let (x) = P(x) + — m x be the c l a s s i c a l p o t e n t i a l , and 1 -1 2 consider U Q ( t i , x ) = tl U (Ti x) , f o r h small and p o s i t i v e . Here Ti i s Planck's constant divided by 2TT , and Ti 4- 0 i s the c l a s s i c a l l i m i t . I f U Q a t t a i n s i t s global minimum more than once, decreasing h has the e f f e c t of separating the minima and r a i s i n g the b a r r i e r ( s ) between them. For deep and widely separated minima of p o s i t i v e curvature (small ti ) the existence of more than one phase i s expected, because of the contribution of each minimum to the exponent i n the fun c t i o n a l i n t e g r a l d e f i n i n g the pressure. I f one the other hand U ^ has a uniquely attained g l o b a l minimum of p o s i t i v e curvature then U Q ("h; •) w i l l have that minimum magnified with respect to the others so that f o r small enough ti a unique phase i s expected -only the global minimum contributes s i g n i f i c a n t l y to the fun c t i o n a l i n t e g r a l . P o s i t i v e curvature i s required to ensure a p o s i t i v e mass f o r each phase. The work of [GJS 76] and [I 81] provides some j u s t i f i c a t i o n for t h i s i n t u i t i o n i n the case where U ^ a t t a i n s i t s global minimum more than once. In Lemma 4.4.1 we show that the i n t u i t i o n i s j u s t i f i e d i n the case of a uniquely attained global minimum. While the c l a s s i c a l p o t e n t i a l U Q provides a ru l e of thumb t e s t f o r the occurrence of phase t r a n s i t i o n s , a rigorous t e s t i s provided by the e f f e c t i v e p o t e n t i a l (which as we s h a l l see i s a quantum analogue of U ^ ) . The e f f e c t i v e p o t e n t i a l was f i r s t introduced i n [GSW 62]. Based on ideas of Jona-Lasinio [J-L 64], i t i s defined i n [CW 73] e s s e n t i a l l y to be the Legendre transform of the pressure i n an external f i e l d . Since the Legendre transform does not always e x i s t we f i n d i t convenient to use instead the unique convex extension of the Legendre transform, i . e . , the convex 8 conjugate or Fenchel transform [Fen 49] of the pressure. We define the e f f e c t i v e p o t e n t i a l V for the P(<f>)0 model by V(a) = sup [ua - a(y)] , yc R a e R (2.2) As we s h a l l see i n Theorem 4.1, V(a) i s always f i n i t e . By d e f i n i t i o n V i s convex and thus cannot have a double well structure. The v a r i a b l e a i s known as the c l a s s i c a l f i e l d , since the supremum i n eqn. (2.2) i s attained at a value of y s a t i s f y i n g provided such a y e x i s t s . The importance of V for the study of phase t r a n s i t i o n s i s a consequence of the f a c t that points of n o n d i f f e r e n t i a b i l i t y of a convex function are i n a one-one correspondence with l i n e a r portions of i t s convex conjugate. (See §2.1 f o r a b r i e f review of convex function theory). That i s , l i n e a r portions of V are i n a one-one correspondence with the occurrence of phase t r a n s i t i o n s . Two examples of the r e l a t i o n s h i p between the one-point function, the pressure, and the e f f e c t i v e p o t e n t i a l are shown i n Figure 1. The most common method for the c a l c u l a t i o n of the e f f e c t i v e p o t e n t i a l i s the loop^expansion [CW 73], [Jack 74], which provides a power se r i e s expansion i n h . U n t i l now the dependence of V on "h has been suppressed. Putting the ti's i n e x p l i c i t l y , the pressure i s given by y 1 -1 : P(t))) - y<j>: a (h ,y) = lim In e (2.3) 2 A+ R' and the e f f e c t i v e p o t e n t i a l by 9 Figure 1: The e f f e c t i v e p o t e n t i a l and phase t r a n s i t i o n s Figure 1 depicts the r e l a t i o n s h i p between the e f f e c t i v e p o t e n t i a l , the pressure and the one-point function i n two examples of an even c l a s s i c a l p o t e n t i a l . In (a) the absence of a l i n e a r p o r t i o n i n V implies that a i s differentiable" everywhere and hence the one point function D a ( y ) = cj>(0)dVp i s continuous. y In (b) the i n t e r v a l C - l , l ] on which V i s l i n e a r with slope zero corresponds to the f a c t that the pressure a i s not d i f f e r e n t i a b l e at y = 0 with l e f t and r i g h t d e r i v a t i v e s -1 and +1 r e s p e c t i v e l y , and hence the one point function jumps from -1 at y = 0~ to +1 at y = 0 + . 10 Vfh,a) = sup [ya - a(h,p)] . (2.4) ye R V i s then approximated by expanding i n a power s e r i e s i n "h and keeping N the f i r s t few terms: V(h,a) - T v (a)Ti n . T y p i c a l l y N i s one or two. „ n n=0 In four dimensions, the approximation with N = 1 has been used i n cosmology [Bran 82]. As we s h a l l see i n Theorem 4.2, v.(a) = U (a) for 0 o most values of a , so U Q ( h ) 1 S t n e c l a s s i c a l l i m i t of V(h,a) . In the physics l i t e r a t u r e i t i s argued that v n ^ a ) 1 S given by a c e r t a i n sum of one-particle i r r e d u c i b l e n-loop Feynman graphs.

The main r e s u l t of t h i s t h e s i s i s a proof that f o r most values of a the expansion of V as a power s e r i e s i n "n i s asymptotic i n the P(<f>)2 theory, with a proof that the c o e f f i c i e n t s of the expansion are given by the appropriate sum of graphs. We also give an example (in Theorem 4.5) where the one-particle i r r e d u c i b l e loop expansion f a i l s f o r c e r t a i n values of a . § 3. Graph Notation Feyman graphs provide a convenient notation for representing i n t e g r a l s of a form that a r i s e s frequently i n quantum f i e l d theory. In t h i s section the graph notation used i n t h i s thesis i s explained. To begin with an example and a fixed t r a n s l a t i o n i n v a r i a n t covariance C(x,y) = C(x-y), the X graph / \ i s by d e f i n i t i o n equal to 2 \ & = X 1 X 2 X 3 ^ 1 d x 2 C ( 0 i x i ) C ( 0 l X 2 ) C ( x l X 2 ) 2 ( 3 ' 1 ) A2 S The r i g h t side of eqn.

To every l i n e there corresponds a fac t o r of C evaluated at the endpoints of the l i n e . These factors are 2 m u l t i p l i e d together, integrated over R with respect to x^ , and the r e s u l t i s m u l t i p l i e d by the vertex factors A. . This procedure i s followed to obtain the value of any graph. Usually the vertex factors depend only on the number of l i n e s emanating from a vertex and are under-stood to be part of the graph without w r i t i n g them e x p l i c i t l y .

The f i r s t theorem states that the supremum i n the d e f i n i t i o n of V(Ti,a) i s f i n i t e . Theorem 4.1: V(?i,a) < 0 0 for a l l Ti > 0 , a e R .

TUO 0 For a \ B , the following theorem provides a rigorous proof for the P(<j>)2 model of a standard (non-rigorous) r e s u l t i n quantum f i e l d theory [IZ 80] [Ram 81], namely that V(Ti,a) can be approximated by the f i r s t terms of the one-particle i r r e d u c i b l e loop expansion. Theorem 4.3: (a) Let a 4 B .

Since U Q i s convex and U Q(a) = 12a 2 + 1 > 0 f o r a l l a , B i s the 1 2 empty set.

A f t e r t h i s research was completed work of Eckmann [E 77] was brought to the author's attention, i n which the loop expansion for the Schwinger functions of the P (<j>) model i s shown to be asymptotic. Theorem 4.3, which gives an asymptotic loop expansion f o r the e f f e c t i v e p o t e n t i a l , i s a natural follow-up to Eckmann's work. We comment i n Chapter 3 where some of our estimates mirror those of Eckmann. 4 In [F 76], i t i s shown that f o r <j> models V i s a n a l y t i c i n c e r t a i n a , with Ti f i x e d . The next theorem gives s u f f i c i e n t conditions for a n a l y t i c i t y of V i n a f o r general polynomials. Theorem 4.4: Let K c B c be compact. There e x i s t s a y > 0 and an open set 0 => K such that V(Ti_, •) has an a n a l y t i c extension to 0 for every "h e (0,y) . There are three main ingredients to the proofs of these theorems. The f i r s t step i s to reduce a n a l y t i c i t y properties of V(Ti_,a) to a n a l y t i c i t y properties of Tia(ri,u) by some elementary convex a n a l y s i s . This i s done i n §2.1.

Theorem 4.5 gives a rigorous j u s t i f i c a t i o n of t h i s f a c t ; the proof i s an easy consequence of using the Fenchel transform to define V(Ti,a) and the known f a c t that there i s a phase t r a n s i t i o n i n t h i s model i f Ti i s s u f f i c i e n t l y small [GJS 76]. The observation that the n order contribution f o r |a| < — i s the connected graphs rather than the 1-PI /8 graphs appears to be new. Chapter 2: PRELIMINARIES § 1.

I t follows that there i s an N > 0 such that G^ c [-N, N] . We claim that f o r a l l y e C-N, N] , there i s a deleted neighbourhood 0 of u such that 0 n Gf = <b . Given the claim, u V 1 l e t 0' = 0 u {y} . There i s a f i n i t e subcover {0 1 ,...,0' } of C-N, N] , 1 1 y y l % and therefore G^ c {y^, . . . ,y } . We now prove the claim, considering the cases y e G^ n C-N, N] and y e G1 n C-N, N ] separately. Suppose y e G x , and l e t W(x) = U u(x+5(y)) - U^(tl(y)) . By Lemma 3.1 there i s a 6 > 0 such that W(x) >_ 6 x n for a l l x e R .

By eqn. (3.4) Z (x) > 6 x n - ex for a l l x e R . (3.6) e — s We consider e > 0 ; the case of e < 0 i s s i m i l a r . C l e a r l y f o r e > 0 the global minimum of Z^ i s negative, and occurs i n { x e R : x > 0 } . Now Z (x) < 0 only i f x e (0, ( e 6 _ : L ) 1 / n _ 1 ) c (o, ( p 6 _ 1 ) 1 / n - 1 ) . Thus i t e suffices to show that there exists a p > 0 such that Z £(x) = 0 has only one root in (0, (pcS ^-)^/n f o r a n e e (o,p) . Note that Z 1(x) = 0 i f and only i f w'(x) = e . e Let a = min{l, min{x > 0: W"(x) = 0}} . Then a > 0 and W is one-one on (0,a) . Let p = 6a11 1 . Then (0,(p6 1 ) 1 / n ^) = (o,a) . Since W i s 1-1 on (0,a) , W* (x) = e has at mc5st one root in ( C C p S - 1 ) 1 7 1 1 " 1 ) . To prove the claim for p e , again consider the case e > 0 . Let £ = max{x e R: U attains i t s global minimum at x} , and l e t p W(x) = U (£+x) - U (£) . The proof here follows the previous case, using the fact that there is a 6 > 0 such that W(x) >_ 6x n , for every x > 0 which is clear from the proof of Lemma 3.1. For the E < 0 case, s h i f t U by 5 = min{x e R: U attains i t s global minimum at x} . • y y Lemma 3.3: The functions m and £ are analytic on G , with m' (p) = -£(p) and (p) = ^n ^ f ] 1 ^ • Furthermore, £ is s t r i c t l y increasing on G ^ , continuous on G ^ , and discontinuous on G ^ ; lim £(p) = ±°° ; and -m e C p-y+oo S Proof: The derivative U Q is an entire function, and for p e G , UQ(5(p)) = p and U Q ( £ ( P ) ) > 0 .

This pressure i s studied using a high temperature c l u s t e r expansion. § 2. The C l u s t e r Expansion The main d i f f i c u l t y i n proving a n a l y t i c i t y of the pressure Tia(Ti,y) and the p o t e n t i a l E(h) i s the i n f i n i t e volume l i m i t . The high temperature c l u s t e r expansion [GJS 73] i s often a useful t o o l i n dealing with the i n f i n i t e volume l i m i t i n a weakly coupled theory. (The terminology "high temperature" comes from the f a c t that weak coupling i n quantum f i e l d theory i s analogous to high temperature i n s t a t i s t i c a l mechanics). By Lemma 2.2.4 we can write a as -1 C I q Tl :<j) : - uT> cj>] i dy . (2.1) 1 a(Ti,y) = li m -ry-p Jin By eqn.

However the s i t u a t i o n i s more complicated than the weak coupling case r -. h treated i n LGJS 73J since Ti occurs to d i f f e r e n t powers i n the d i f f e r e n t terms of the i n t e r a c t i o n . In t h i s section we write down the c l u s t e r expansion and give conditions f o r and consequences of i t s convergence. In the next section we prove bounds on the p a r t i t i o n function i n eqn. ( 2 . 1 ) (for y = 0) that guarantee convergence uniform i n "h . To begin, we introduce some notation. Since we are using p e r i o d i c BC , we i d e n t i f y opposite sides of A to obtain a torus. Let 8^ denote the set of a l l l a t t i c e bonds j o i n i n g nearest neighbour s i t e s i n the 2 p e r i o d i c l a t t i c e A n Z . For each b e we introduce a parameter S, e [0, 1 ] . Let b C ( S ) = I TT S TT ( 1 - S )C r c BA b e r C r r c 2 - i r c where C = (-A^ +m ) with the Laplacian with p e r i o d i c BC on 8A c r c and D i r i c h l e t BC on T , ( i . e . , A^ i s the F r i e d r i c h ' s extension [Kato 66] of A r e s t r i c t e d to C°°(A\rC)) . When s,_ = 0 each nonzero u b term i n C(s) has D i r i c h l e t BC on the bond b , whereas f o r s = 1 each term does not have D i r i c h l e t BC on b but i s f u l l y coupled across b . The parameter gives a measure of the amount of coupling i n C(s) r d across the bond b . For T c B , l e t 8 = TT and A ber d s b s ( D b = s^ i f b e T b 0 i f b | r Let dy(s) be Gaussian measure on S'(R 2) with covariance C(s) , and l e t Z(A,A ( S) = k - V ( A , X , s ) d u ( s ) where V(A,X,s) = I a. (X) k=0 k !* -C(s) 41 and the a are functions of X e 0 <= C m . We sometimes write Z (A,X) f o r Z(A,X,x ) , the p a r t i t i o n function with D i r i c h l e t BC on T . Let r c O x , A , s = Z ^ ' S > -1 -V(A,X,s), e dy(s) Then the following expansion holds k., • • • k 1 r , S A (x k k .,...,x ) = <":<)> (x ):...:<(. r ( x ) :\ 1 r \ 1 r / X,A,1 I x,r 1 r f r k-n :<(> ^"(x. ) :e i = l 1 - V ( X , X , s ( D ) dy ( s ( r ) ) d s ( D Z9x(A\x,X) Z(A,X,1) (2.2) k .. .k I T r(X,r,A,X ;x ,...,x ) , x,r r where i n the summation X ranges over a l l unions of closed l a t t i c e squares i n A containing {x ,...,x r) while T ranges over subsets of n i n t X o such that each component of X\T has nonempty i n t e r s e c t i o n with {x,,...,x } .

Theorem 2.1: Suppose |a (X)| <_ L for a l l X e 0 , k e {0,1,2,...,n} , and that the following bounds hold: For some p > 1 , If -PV(A,X,s) | K|A| | e dp (s) I <_ e 1 , f o r a l l X e 0 , A , s (2.3) 42 and _^ — , for a l l A e 0 , and f o r any u n i t l a t t i c e square A .

The f i r s t i s that the number of terms i n the sum over X and Y i n eqn. (2.2) having a c 1 j X | f i x e d value of |X| can be bounded above by e where i s a constant depending only on the geometry. The second key r e s u l t i s that fo r any constant C > 0 there i s a constant > 0 , depending on the K of eqn.

F i r s t we reduce the problem to r e a l t l using an elementary argument and use conditioning 46 [GRS 76] to reduce to the case s = 1 .

The c o e f f i c i e n t s of the l i n e a r combination w i l l include combinatorial factors and powers of t . 82 Derivatives of f are ca l c u l a t e d as follows. Since D 2a(h,u(h)) = 0 by d e f i n i t i o n of u (Ti) , i t follows from the f a c t that D 2 C ( t , f ( t ) ) = t D 2 a ( t 2 , y ( t 2 ) ) that D 2 C ( t , f ( t ) ) = 0 . (1.11) By eqn.

The f i r s t three terms come from d i f f e r e n t i a t i n g the numerator -O* °f eqn.

By the same reasoning used to d i f f e r e n t i a t e - 0 > above, _d dt Q /k\ £\ ~~"'-o-Using the formula (1.16) i t follows from eqn. (1.13) and induction that D f ( t ) i s a l i n e a r combination of quotients of the form (1.17) l -0 - ) M where the diagram eventually terminates; M - 1 i s the t o t a l number of matched p a i r s of legs, i . e . , M = m +m +m ; and there i s only one j- ^ *J k-1 unmatched l e g . To see t h i s , suppose D f ( t ) i s of the form (1.17) and note that d i f f e r e n t i a t i o n of any factor of the numerator (using (1.16)) produces a sum of terms of the form (1.17). Also, using the quotient r u l e to d i f f e r e n t i a t e the denominator gives terms of the form (1.17) by matching one leg of ^ - Q - to the unmatched leg of the numerator. (There w i l l s t i l l 84 be one unmatched l e g l e f t over). In the l i m i t t 0 the measure i n (1.9) becomes dy by Lemma 3.4.1. c u l Hence by Wick's Theorem D f(0) i s a l i n e a r combination of products of connected graphs without s e l f - l i n e s , with v e r t i c e s and l i n e s as i n the statement of the Theorem as well as one-legged v e r t i c e s which match up i n M - 1 p a i r s as depicted i n (1.17), divided by I • • ) . Thus there i s one power of • » f o r each matched p a i r of legs, with one power l e f t over. The unmatched l e g i n (1.17) should be thought of as being matched to the corresponding l e g of (1.10), and the extra power of *• « i n the denominator as corresponding to these legs. As we w i l l now show, at t = 0 each f a c t o r of • » i n the denominator serves to l i n k together one matched p a i r of legs to create a connected graph. We w i l l now show that at t = 0 (1.18) Ik » Ik 1 2 where each c i r c l e denotes a connected graph with no v e r t i c e s other than those e x p l i c i t l y drawn. In f a c t , each of the l i n e s L^ and must be connected to a multi-legged vertex; choose these to be the v e r t i c e s f i x e d at zero when evaluating the graphs. Then the numerator can be written dxC.lO,x)l" T ^ 2 " 1 (1.19) £ _ i T ^9 where the dashed l i n e s i n d i c a t e the absence of L^ and L^ . One of the dxC^(0,x) on the r i g h t side of eqn. (1.19) cancels the factors denominator on the l e f t side of eqn. (1.18). The remaining factor serves 85 to l i n k up the two graphs on the r i g h t side of eqn. (1.19). To see t h i s , take one of the graphs under the i n t e g r a l dxC^(0,x) and use t r a n s l a t i o n invariance to f i x the f i x e d vertex of that graph at x instead of at the o r i g i n . Since the remaining graph has one vertex f i x e d at zero, C^(0,x) l i n k s the two graphs together. This proves eqn. (1.18). Theorem 1.3 now follows by repeated a p p l i c a t i o n of eqn. (1.18) to see that at t = 0 the M - 1 matched p a i r s of legs i n (1.17) can be joined by c a n c e l l i n g M - 1 factors of • . • • , i n the denominator, and that the sing l e unmatched l e g of (1.17) can be joined to the appropriate unmatched l e g of (1.10) by c a n c e l l i n g the remaining f a c t o r of »••' • » i n the denominator, r e s u l t i n g i n a connected graph. • § 2.

We begin with a lemma about C(X) ^ . Recall from the d e f i n i t i o n of C(X) (eqn. (2.1)) that the nondiagonal elements of C(X) are required to be l e s s than or equal to r .

But because of the form of C(A) 1 N N+l . 2 N (eqn.

I t follows that the second e q u a l i t y i n eqn. (5.5) i s an equality of polynomials i n the r^_. (l<i,j<N or N+l<i,j< 2 N ) , and so the c o e f f i c i e n t s of these polynomials must agree. However these c o e f f i c i e n t s characterize the graphs t o p o l o g i c a l l y . To see t h i s , note that the r^_. are i n a one-one correspondence with l i n e s j o i n i n g x^ to x^ . Thus a product of r i j ' s characterizes the parts of the graph s i t t i n g i n each of the s u b l a t t i c e s {x,,...,x„} and {x x_„} . Because there w i l l be only one vertex 1 N N+l 2 N 115 x. i n each s u b l a t t i c e that does not have i t s f u l l quota k of l i n e s provided by the s u b l a t t i c e graphs, there i s one and only one way that the l i n e crossing from {x^,...,^} to {XM+I' • • • , X2N^ c a n ^ ° ^ n t h e t w o s u b l a t t i c e s , and the graph i s uniquely determined. Therefore I K = I No ( 5 ' 6 ) one l i n e one l i n e with exactly the same graphs occurring on each side of the equation. Now d i s c a r d the graphs contributing to eqn. (5.6) from eqn.

But I - V + 1 i s exactly the number of loops i n the unrenormalized graph. • In conclusion we combine the r e s u l t s of t h i s chapter to prove Theorem 1.4.3(b). By eqn.

Title | An asymptotic loop extension for the effective potential in the p(ø)₂ quantum field theory |
Creator |
Slade, Gordon Douglas |
Publisher | University of British Columbia |
Date Issued | 1984 |
Description | The effective potential V(n,a) for the Euclidean p(ø)₂ quantum field theory is defined to be the Fenchel transform (convex conjugate) of the pressure in an external field, and is shown to be finite. The parameter h is Planck’s constant divided by 2π. The classical limit (h↓0) of the effective potential is shown to be the convex hull of the classical potential P(a) + 1/2m²a². For values of a for which the classical potential is equal to its convex hull and has a nonvanishing second derivative, the usual one-particle irreducible loop expansion for the effective potential is shown to be asymptotic as (h↓0), using a uniformly convergent (as h↓0) high temperature cluster expansion and irreducibility properties of the Legendre transform. For the same values of a, V is shown to be analytic in a for sufficiently small h. Finally an example is given for a double well classical potential where the one-particle irreducible loop expansion fails to be asymptotic, and the true asymptotics are obtained. |
