Length distributions in loop soups.
Statistical lattice ensembles of loops in three or more dimensions typically have phases in which the longest loops fill a finite fraction of the system. In such phases it is natural to ask about the distribution of loop lengths. We show how to calculate moments of these distributions using CP(n-1) or RP(n-1) and O(n) σ models together with replica techniques. The resulting joint length distribution for macroscopic loops is Poisson-Dirichlet with a parameter θ fixed by the loop fugacity and b...Expand abstract
