Reply to comment on "Continuum dual theory of the transition in 3D lattice superconductor"
Abstract
It is argued that the penetration depth and the correlation length at the critical point of the 3D superconductor diverge with the same critical exponents, as follows from the general scaling arguments and from the independent calculations in both GinzburgLandau and its dual theory. The incorrect prediction of Kiometzis, Kleinert and Schakel (KKS) that this is is not so, is the result of the faulty treatment of the dual theory, in which two, instead of one, coupling constants are tuned to reach the critical point. The recent paper by the present author criticized by KKS in condmat/9702159 differs on this point from KKS, and consequently finds the expected relation between the divergence of the two lengths in the critical region.
