A priori estimates forN=2 Wess-Zumino models on a cylinder

  • Arthur Jaffe
  • Andrzej Lesniewski


We establish bounds uniform in the ultraviolet cutoff (i.e., in the number of degrees of freedom) for a family of two-dimensional Wess-Zumino models. These estimates are useful in proving existence of the models, as well as in investigating their properties. For example, we require these estimates for the analysis of the supercharge and of the Hamiltonian. These are the fundamental a priori estimates for elliptic regularity in infinite dimensions.
