Dynamical electron mass in a strong magnetic field
Motivated by recent interest in understanding properties of strongly magnetized matter, we study the dynamical electron mass generated through approximate chiral symmetry breaking in QED in a strong
Landau levels in QCD in an external magnetic field
We will discuss the issue of Landau levels of quarks in lattice QCD in an external magnetic field. We will show that in the two-dimensional case the lowest Landau level can be identified
Landau levels in QCD
We present first evidence for the Landau level structure of Dirac eigenmodes in full QCD for nonzero background magnetic fields, based on first principles lattice simulations using staggered quarks.
Localization, dualization, and magnetic fields in strongly coupled quantum field theories
This thesis is comprised of three parts. In part one Anderson localization is studied in the context of QCD, an Anderson-Ising model, and CP(N-1). For the first two the effect of a background
New look at the modified Coulomb potential in a strong magnetic field
The static Coulomb potential of quantum electrodynamics (QED) is calculated in the presence of a strong magnetic field in the lowest Landau level approximation using two different methods. First, the

Chiral symmetry breaking in a uniform external magnetic field
Using the nonperturbative Schwinger-Dyson equation, we show that chiral symmetry is dynamically broken in QED at weak gauge couplings when an external magnetic field is present and that chiral

TLDR
This work develops a method for using the nonperturbative Schwinger-Dyson equation to study chiral symmetry breaking in an external field and obtains a nontrivial solution for the fermion self-energy at weak coupling, suggesting that chiral geometry is dynamically broken.
Dynamical chiral symmetry breaking in QED in a magnetic field: Toward exact results
We describe an (first, to the best of our knowledge) essentially soluble example of dynamical symmetry breaking phenomenon in a (3+1) -dimensional gauge theory without fundamental scalar fields: QED
Ward-Takahashi Identity with External Field in Ladder QED
We derive the Ward-Takahashi identity obeyed by the fermion-antifermion-gauge boson vertex in ladder QED in the presence of a constant magnetic field. The general structure in momentum space of the

We perform the renormalization group analysis on the dynamical symmetry breaking under strong external magnetic field, studied recently by Gusynin, Miransky and Shovkovy. We find that any attractive
Remark on the momentum dependence of the magnetic catalysis in QED
We propose a new derivation of the fermion dynamical mass generated in four-dimensional QED in the presence of an external constant magnetic field, taking into account the momentum dependence of the
