Abstract

The matrix model of topological field theory for the moduli space of p-th spin curves is extended to the case of the Lie algebra of the orthogonal group. We derive a new duality relation for the expectation values of characteristic polynomials in the antisymmetric Gaussian matrix model with an external matrix source. The intersection numbers for non-orientable surfaces of spin curves with k marked points are obtained from the Fourier transform of the k-point correlation functions at the critical point where the gap is closing.
