- 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.

- The Continuous Series of Critical Points of the Two-Matrix Model at N -> infinity in the Double Scaling Limit (1998)
- The critical points of the continuous series are characterized by two complex numbers l_1,l_2 (Re(l_1,l_2)< 0), and a natural number n (n>=3) which enters the string susceptibility constant through gamma = -2/(n-1). The critical potentials are analytic functions with a convergence radius depending on l_1 or l_2. We use the orthogonal polynomial method and solve the Schwinger-Dyson equations with a technique borrowed from conformal field theory.

- The construction of trigonometric invariants for Weyl groups and the derivation of corresponding exactly solvable Sutherland models (1999)
- Trigonometric invariants are defined for each Weyl group orbit on the root lattice. They are real and periodic on the coroot lattice. Their polynomial algebra is spanned by a basis which is calculated by means of an algorithm. The invariants of the basis can be used as coordinates in any cell of the coroot space and lead to an exactly solvable model of Sutherland type. We apply this construction to the \(F_4\) case.

- Remarks on 'Coloring Random Triangulation' (1998)
- We transform the two-matrix model, studied by P.Di Francesco and al., into a normal one-matrix model by identifying a 'formal' integral used by these authors as a proper integral. We show also, using their method, that the results obtained for the resolvent and the density are not reliable.

- Perturbative approach to the critical behaviour of two-matrix models in the limit N -> infinity (1997)
- We construct representations of the Heisenberg algebra by pushing the perturbation expansion to high orders.

- On the critical behaviour of hermitean f-matrix models in the double scaling limit with f >= 3 (1999)
- An algorithm for the isolation of any singularity of f-matrix models in the double scaling limit is presented. In particular it is proved by construction that only those universality classes exist that are known from 2-matrix models.

- 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.

- 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.

- Exactly solvable dynamical systems in the neighborhood of the Calogero model (1999)
- The Hamiltonian of the \(N\)-particle Calogero model can be expressed in terms of generators of a Lie algebra for a definite class of representations. Maintaining this Lie algebra, its representations, and the flatness of the Riemannian metric belonging to the second order differential operator, the set of all possible quadratic Lie algebra forms is investigated. For \(N = 3\) and \(N = 4\) such forms are constructed explicitly and shown to correspond to exactly solvable Sutherland models. The results can be carried over easily to all \(N\).

- 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.
