Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We complete the bosonization of two-dimensional QCD within the path-integral approach. We compute the contribution of the gauge field sector, which was considered as a background in previous works. This enables us to obtain an effective Lagrangian completely written in terms of bosons. The current algebra which arises in this bosonic context is also discussed.
