- Aspects of the conformal operator product expansion in AdS/CFT correspondence (2000)
- We present a detailed analysis of a scalar conformal four-point function obtained from AdS/CFT correspondence. We study the scalar exchange graphs in AdS and discuss their analytic properties. Using methods of conformal partial wave analysis, we present a general procedure to study conformal four-point functions in terms of exchanges of scalar and tensor fields. The logarithmic terms in the four-point functions are connected to the anomalous dimensions of the exchanged fields. Comparison of the results from AdS graphs with the conformal partial wave analysis, suggests a possible general form for the operator product expansion of scalar fields in the boundary CFT.

- A note on the analyticity of AdS scalar exchange graphs in the crossed channel (2000)
- We discuss the analytic properties of AdS scalar exchange graphs in the crossed channel. We show that the possible non-analytic terms drop out by virtue of non-trivial properties of generalized hypergeometric functions. The absence of non-analytic terms is a necessary condition for the existence of an operator product expansion for CFT amplitudes obtained from AdS/CFT correspondence.

- Double Scaling Limits and Catastrophes of the zerodimensional O(N) Vector Sigma Model: The A-Series (1994)
- We evaluate the partition functions in the neighbourhood of catastrophes by saddle point integration and express them in terms of generalized Airy functions.

- Double Scaling Limits, Airy Functions and Multicritical Behaviour in O(N) Vektor Sigma Models (1995)
- O(N) vector sigma models possessing catastrophes in their action are studied. Coupling the limit N - > infinity with an appropriate scaling behaviour of the coupling constants, the partition function develops a singular factor. This is a generalized Airy function in the case of spacetime dimension zero and the partition function of a scalar field theory for positive spacetime dimension.

- Greensite-Halpern stabilization of Ak singularities in the N -> infty limit (1995)
- The Greensite-Halpern method of stabilizing bottomless Euclidean actions is applied to zerodimensional O(N) sigma models with unstable \(A_k\) singularities in the \( N = \infty\) limit.

- Critical O(N) -vector nonlinear sigma-models: a resume of their field structure (1993)
- Abstract: The classification of quasi - primary fields is outlined. It is proved that the only conserved quasi - primary currents are the energy - momentum tensor and the O(N)-Noether currents. Derivation of all quasi - primary fields and the resolution of degeneracy is sketched. Finally the limits d = 2 and d = 4 of the space dimension are discussed. Whereas the latter is trivial the former is only almost so.

- The critical O(N) sigma-model at dimension 2<d<4: Hardy-Ramanujan distribution of quasi-primary fields and a collective fusion approach (1994)
- The distribution of quasiprimary fields of fixed classes characterized by their O(N) representations Y and the number p of vector fields from which they are composed at N=infty in dependence on their normal dimension delta is shown to obey a Hardy-Ramanujan law at leading order in a 1/N-expansion. We develop a method of collective fusion of the fundamental fields which yields arbitrary qps and resolves any degeneracy.

- An exactly solvable model of the Calogero type for the icosahedral group (1998)
- We construct a quantum mechanical model of the Calogero type for the icosahedral group as the structural group. Exact solvability is proved and the spectrum is derived explicitly.

- Is it possible to construct exactly solvable models? (1998)
- We develop a constructive method to derive exactly solvable quantum mechanical models of rational (Calogero) and trigonometric (Sutherland) type. This method starts from a linear algebra problem: finding eigenvectors of triangular finite matrices. These eigenvectors are transcribed into eigenfunctions of a selfadjoint Schrödinger operator. We prove the feasibility of our method by constructing a new "\(AG_3\) model" of trigonometric type (the rational case was known before from Wolfes 1975). Applying a Coxeter group analysis we prove its equivalence with the \(B_3\) model. In order to better understand features of our construction we exhibit the \(F_4\) rational model with our method.

- Construction of exactly solvable quantum models of Calogero and Sutherland type with translation invariant four-particle interactions (1998)
- We construct exactly solvable models for four particles moving on a real line or on a circle with translation invariant two- and four-particle interactions.
