Quantum Parity Conservation in Planar Quantum Electrodynamics

Quantum parity conservation is verified at all orders in perturbation theory for a massless parity-even U(1) × U(1) planar quantum electrodynamics (QED3) model. The presence of two massless fermions

Non-perturbative Quantum Electrodynamics in low dimensions

Field theories provide the relevant modern framework to account for the quantum physics of the smallest constituents of matter and their interactions, save for the gravitational interaction. While

Non-perturbative dynamics, pair condensation, confinement and dynamical masses in massless QED2+1

Quantum electrodynamics in three spacetime dimensions, with one massless fermion species in a two-spinor representation, is studied using a non-perturbative variational approach. Quantization of the

On the electron–polaron–electron–polaron scattering and Landau levels in pristine graphene-like quantum electrodynamics

The parity-preserving $U(1)\times U(1)$ massless QED$_3$ is proposed as a pristine graphene-like planar quantum electrodynamics model. The spectrum content, the degrees of freedom, spin, masses and



Renormalization of the abelian Higgs-Kibble model

This article is devoted to the perturbative renormalization of the abelian Higgs-Kibble model, within the class of renormalizable gauges which are odd under charge conjugation. The Bogoliubov

Parity violation and gauge noninvariance of the effective gauge field action in three dimensions

The effective gauge field action due to fermions coupled to $\mathrm{SU}(N)$ gauge fields in three dimensions is found to change by $\ifmmode\pm\else\textpm\fi{}\ensuremath{\pi}|n|$ under a

Gauge noninvariance and parity nonconservation of three-dimensional fermions

The effective gauge field action due to an odd number of fermion species in three-dimensional $\mathrm{SU}(N)$ gauge theories is shown to change by $\ifmmode\pm\else\textpm\fi{}\ensuremath{\pi}|n|$

How super-renormalizable interactions cure their infrared divergences

Perturbative expansions in models which possess super-renormalizable interactions of massless fields are beset by severe infrared divergences. We show that the complete theory is well defined and has

Induced parity violation in odd dimensions

One of the interesting features about field theories in odd dimensions is the induction of parity-violating terms and well-defined finite topological actions via quantum loops if a fermion mass term

Introduction to the Technique of Dimensional Regularization

The purpose of this review article is to explain and illustrate in detail the technique of dimensional regularization, which is a major mathematical tool in the renormalization program of gauge
