We show that vortex configurations generate a mass gap (finite correlation length) for T > 0 in non-abelian chiral SU(N) ×SU(N) spin systems in two dimensions. These vortices and the fluctuations around them mutually stabilize each other in the infrared. © 1980 North-Holland Publishing Company. All Rights Reserved.
