Abstract

This is the third of the series of articles on the large-N two-dimensional ℂℙN − 1 sigma model, defined on a finite space interval L with Dirichlet boundary conditions. Here the cases of the general Dirichlet boundary conditions are studied, where the relative ℂℙN − 1 orientations at the two boundaries are generic, and numerical solutions are presented. Distinctive features of the ℂℙN − 1 sigma model, as compared e.g., to an O(N) model, which were not entirely evident in the basic properties studied in the first two articles in the large N limit, manifest themselves here. It is found that the total energy is minimized when the fields are aligned in the same direction at the two boundaries.
