2D and loop variables

  1. Aug 27, 2007 #1
    I'm looking for some simple articles on 2D physics, Wilson loops, loop variables and similar. The purpose is to gain insights in LQG using lower dimensions.

    Thanks for your help

    Do you mean 1+1 or 2+1 spacetime dimensions?

    1+1 or 2+1. My focus is more on simplicity (i.e. manageable examples of loop technology) rather than a particular spacetime. If a toroidal space would make everything more simple then I'd be happy, if it's more a 2D lattice I'd consider that.
    Maybe I could rephrase it as: is there a toy-model to play with rather than the full 4D spacetime?

    The article is rather compact but the references therein are certainly useful. Thank you for your help!
