Quasi-Particles, Conformal Field Theory, and $q$-Series

Dasmahapatra, Srinandan, Kedem, Rinat, Klassen, Tim, McCoy, Barry M and Melzer, Ezer (1993) Quasi-Particles, Conformal Field Theory, and $q$-Series International Journal of Modern Physics B, 7, pp. 3617-3648.

Record type: Article


We review recent results concerning the representation of conformal field theory characters in terms of fermionic quasi-particle excitations, and describe in detail their construction in the case of the integrable three-state Potts chain. These fermionic representations are q-series which are generalizations of the sums occurring in the Rogers-Ramanujan identities.
