Title: Planar-diagram bootstrap for an integrable field theory

Abstract: The SU(N)XSU(N) principal chiral model in 1+1 dimensions is an
asymptotically-free matrix-valued field theory. This model has utility in
understanding gauge theories in 2+1 dimensions, but is also interesting in
its own right.

The S-matrix of the model is known, but not its correlators.
I will show the leading correction to free-field behavior of the two-point
correlator at large N.
