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 equal-time one. The discussion may be of relevance in the context of the quantization of gravitation theory. The LF quantization is argued to be equally appropriate as the conventional equal-time one. The description on the LF of the spontaneous symmetry breaking and the (tree level) Higgs mechanism, the… 
Pair Production and the Light-Front Vacuum
Dominated by Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, vacuum is not quantum mechanically an empty void, i.e. virtual pairs of particles appear and disappear persistently. This nonlinearity subsequently ...


Light-Front Quantization of Field Theory
Some basic topics in Light-Front (LF) quantized field theory are reviewed. Poincar\`e algebra and the LF Spin operator are discussed. The local scalar field theory of the conventional framework is
Light-front-quantized QCD in Covariant Gauge
The light-front (LF) canonical quantization of quantum chromodynamics in covariant gauge is discussed. The Dirac procedure is used to eliminate the constraints in the gauge-fixed front form theory
Gauge Field Theories
All the current successful theories of the fundamental forces start from the premise of invariance of the physical laws to certain coordinate-dependent transformations. In particular, the quantum
Review of matrix theory
Matrix theory [1] is a nonperturbative theory of fundamental processes which evolved out of the older perturbative string theory. There are two well-known formulations of string theory, one covariant
Light-Front Quantization and Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking
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
Light-Front Quantum Chromodynamics
Light-front quantum chromodynamics may lead to an accurate constituent approximation for the low-energy properties of hadrons. This requires a cutoff that violates explicit gauge invariance and
PROF. H. A. WILSON is best known for his experimental researches, but this book shows that he is also able to give clear expositions of the more theoretical aspects of modern physics. As he has
Non-perturbative methods in 2 dimensional quantum field theory
This book is a survey of methods used in the study of two-dimensional models in quantum field theory as well as applications of these theories in physics. It covers the subject since the first model,
Relativistic quantum field theory.
The logical foundations of relativistic quantum field theory are described and it is indicated how the differential version transcends the correspondence principle and incorporates, on the same footing, two different kinds of quantum dyna-mical variable.
Lecture Notes on Physics
THE author says in his preface that the book “may be supposed to represent the notes, somewhat expanded, which the teacher would desire the class to take down and learn.” If so, the “notes”before us
