The Equivalence Theorem and Global Anomalies

  title={The Equivalence Theorem and Global Anomalies},
  author={John F. Donoghue and Jusak Tandean},
In the presence of some forms of global anomalies, the equivalence theorem, which relates the interactions of longitudinal gauge bosons to those of the Goldstone bosons, is not always valid. This can occur when the Goldstone sector contains an anomaly which is canceled in the gauge currents by the effects of a different sector of the theory. The example of… CONTINUE READING
