Abstract

We verify that summing 2D DT geometries correctly reproduces the Polyakov action for the conformal mode, including all ghost contributions, at large volumes. The Gaussian action is reproduced even for cm = 10, well into the branched polymer phase, which confirms the expectation that the DT measure is indeed correct in this regime as well
