2001 Physical Review B (Condensed Matter)  
The finite temperature physics of the gas of elastic quantum strings as introduced in J. Zaanen, Phys. Rev. Lett. 84, 753 is investigated. This model is inspired on the stripes in the high Tc superconductors. We analyze in detail how the kinetic interactions of the zero temperature quantum problem crossover into the entropic interactions of the high temperature limit.
