Continuum limits for lattice strings?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We report on a numerical simulation of a dynamically triangulated random surface with extrinsic curvature. Evidence for a crumpling transition at finite coupling is shown. By measuring loop correlation functions we are able to extract both the mass gap and string tension. Preliminary results indicate that the latter may scale close to the new critical point in such a way as to ensure that the continuum limit describes the fluctuations of a genuine 2D surface.
