Abstract

Abstract: In a previous paper [1], we analyzed the theory of massive fermions in the fundamental representation coupled to a U(N) Chern-Simons gauge theory in three dimensions at level K. It was done in the large N , large K limits where (Formula presented.) was kept fixed. Among other results, we showed there that there are no high mass “quark anti-quark” bound states. Here we show that there are no bound states at all.
