Equivalence of Chern-Simons gauge theory and WZNW model using a BRST symmetry
1999 (English)In: Physics Letters B, ISSN 0370-2693, E-ISSN 1873-2445, ., Vol. 466, 227-233 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The equivalence between the Chern-Simons gauge theory on a three-dimensional manifold with boundary and the WZNW model on the boundary is established in a simple and general way using the BRST symmetry. Our approach is based on restoring gauge invariance of the Chern-Simons theory in the presence of a boundary. This gives a correspondence to the WZNW model that does not require solving any constraints, fixing the gauge or specifying boundary conditions.
