Non-perturbative Analysis of the Coleman-weinberg Phase Transition

Abstract

We perform a non-perturbative study of the Coleman-Weinberg phase transition in scalar QED. Our method permits a consistent treatment of the effective potential near the origin, a region not accessible to perturbation theory. As a result, we establish reliably the first order character of the phase transition for arbitrary values of the scalar coupling. e… (More)
