A strict QCD inequality and mechanisms for chiral symmetry breaking

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A strict QCD inequality allows one to discuss mechanisms proposed for breaking the chiral symmetry in QCD. "Order parameters" are identified such that if sufficiently many gauge field configurations contribute to them, spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking follows. As an application the role of instantons is discussed in chiral symmetry breaking in OCD.
