The Bethe ansatz solutions of the massive Thirring model are renormalised and used to obtain exactly the ground-state properties of the sine-Gordon model with a finite density of topological solitons. Using a theory of 1D quantum fluids, the correlation function exponents and low-energy excitation spectrum are obtained. Expansions in various limits are given, and various crossovers described.
