A Hamiltonian cycle of a graph is a closed path that visits every vertex once
and only once. It serves as a model of a compact polymer on a lattice. I study
the number of Hamiltonian cycles, or equivalently the entropy of a compact
polymer, on var...

We study the relation between lattice construction and surgery construction
of three-dimensional topological field theories. We show that a class of the
Chung-Fukuma-Shapere theory on the lattice has representation theoretic
reformulation which is...

We derive a minimal set of Feynman rules for the loop amplitudes in unitary
models of closed strings, whose target space is a simply laced (extended)
Dynkin diagram. The string field Feynman graphs are composed of propagators,
vertices (including ...

We investigate the 3d lattice topological field theories defined by Chung,

underlying Hopf algeb...

The renormalization group approach is studied for large N models. The approach of Brezin and Zinn-Justin is explained and examined for matrix models. The validity of the approach is clarified by using the vector model as a similar and simpler exam...

An exact renormalization group equation is derived for the free energy of
matrix models. The renormalization group equation turns out to be nonlinear for
matrix models, as opposed to linear for vector models. An algorithm for
determining the criti...

The validity of the renormalization group approach for large Tex is clarified
by using the vector model as an example. An exact difference equation is
obtained which relates free energies for neighboring values of Tex. The
reparametrization freedo...
