Dynamical mass generation of a two-component fermion in ${\mathrm{QED}}_{3}$ with a Chern-Simons term is investigated by solving the Schwinger-Dyson equation formulated in the lowest ladder approximation. The dependence of the dynamical fermion mass on a gauge-fixing parameter, a gauge coupling constant, and a topological mass is examined by approximated analytical and also numerical methods. The inclusion of the Chern-Simons term makes it impossible to choose a peculiar gauge in which a wave… CONTINUE READING
