More variables usually means greater complexity, hue not
always* There exist: families of field theories with symmetry
group SO(K) (or SVC)) that become simpler AS S becomes larger.
More precisely, the saintions to these theories possess an expan-
sion in powers of l/U. This expansion is the subject of these
There are two reasons to study the !/S expansion,
(1) It can he used to analyse model field theories. This
is important, JVi«t of us have a good intuition for the phenomena
oi classical mechanics. We were not horn with this intuition: we
developed it toiling aver problems involving rigid spheres chat
roll without slipping and similar extreme but instructive simpli-
fications of reality. One reason we have such a poor Intuition
for the phenomena of quantum field theory is that there ate so
few simple examples; essentially all wc have to play with is
Here’s what’s next.
