### UNIVERSAL PROPERTIES OF SELF-AVOIDING WALKS FROM 2-DIMENSIONAL FIELD-THEORY

Abstract:

We use the recently conjectured exact S-matrix of the massive O(n) model to derive its form factors and ground state energy. This information is then used in the limit n → 0 to obtain quantitative results for various universal properties of self-avoiding chains and loops. In particular, we give the first theoretical prediction of the amplitude ratio C/D which relates the mean square end-to-end distance of chains to the mean square radius of gyration of closed loops. This agrees with the resul...
