Tetrahedron equations and the relativisticS-matrix of straight-strings in 2+1-Dimensions

  • A. B. Zamolodchikov


The quantumS-matrix theory of straight-strings (infinite one-dimensional objects like straight domain walls) in 2+1-dimensions is considered. TheS-matrix is supposed to be “purely elastic” and factorized. The tetrahedron equations (which are the factorization conditions) are investigated for the special “two-colour” model. The relativistic three-stringS-matrix, which apparently satisfies this tetrahedron equation, is proposed.
