Abstract [en]

We present a 2+1 dimensional quantum gauge theory with correlated fermions that is exactly solvable by bosonization. This model describes a system of Luttinger liquids propagating on two sets of equidistant lines forming a grid embedded in two dimensional continuum space; this system has two dimensional character due to density-density interactions and due to a coupling to dynamical photons propagating in the continuous embedding space. We argue that this model gives an effective description of partially gapped fermions on a square lattice that have density-density interactions and are coupled to photons. Our results include the following: after non-trivial renormalizations of the coupling parameters, the model remains well-defined in the quantum field theory limit as the grid of lines becomes a continuum; the photons in this model are massive due to gauge-invariant normal-ordering, similarly as in the Schwinger model; the exact excitation spectrum of the model has two gapped and one gapless mode.
