Abstract

We will show that the abelian topological mass mechanism in four dimensions, described by the Cremmer-Sherk action, can be obtained from dimensional reduction in five dimensions. The gauge invariant action in five dimensions is those from which the dual equivalence between a massless vector field and a massless second-rank antisymmetric field in five dimensions is established. The dimensional reduction is performed keeping only one massive mode. 1 e-mail: adel@ciens.ula.ve
