The spontaneous symmetry breaking (and Higgs) mechanism in the theory quantized on the light-front ({\it l.f.}), in the {\it discretized formulation}, is discussed. The infinite volume limit is taken to obtain the {\it continuum version}. The hamiltonian formulation is shown to contain a new ingredient in the form of nonlocal {\it constraint eqs.} which lead to a {\it nonlocal l.f. Hamiltonian}. The description of the broken symmetry here has the same physical content as in the conventional… 
Light-front Quantized Field Theory: Some New Results
A review is made on some recent studies which support the point of view that the relativistic field theory quantized on the light-front (LF) is more transparent compared to the conventional
Light-front-quantized QCD in the light-cone gauge: The doubly transverse gauge propagator
The light-front (LF) quantization of QCD in the light-cone gauge has a number of remarkable advantages, including explicit unitarity, a physical Fock expansion, the absence of ghost degrees of
