QED3 at Finite Temperature and Density    [PDF]

P. M. Lo, E. S. Swanson
Schwinger-Dyson equations are used to study the phase diagram of QED in three dimensions. This computation is made with full frequency-dependence in the two-point function gap equations for the first time. We also demonstrate that reliable results are attainable in spite of an infrared divergence that is endemic to the theory. A theoretically sound method for dealing with cutoff ultraviolet regulators is presented. Finally, it is shown that the quenched and instantaneous approximations often used in the literature are inaccurate.
