Chiral symmetry breaking in a uniform external magnetic field

- Physics

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…

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.
