概要 Employing a coherent state path integral method, we derive an action from the Kac-Moody algebra of level k. We show that it is the light-cone WZW action with a finite-size term. The current operators also contain a finite-size term and are shown to satisfy the original commutation relations. The finite term is necessary to derive the exact phase space and also to understand the constraint 0\leq 2J \leq k (for SU (2)) in terms of the path integral language.
