String models with \(c<1\) components. (English) Zbl 0661.17018
We construct part of the current algebra of d-dimensional strings from statistical mechanical models with \(c<1\). General properties of such models are discussed and a few examples are given. In the process, a fermionic field theoretic realization of the \(c<1\) modular invariant models emerges. Bosonization aspects of the systems are discussed.
