# The Light-Cone Effective Potential

@article{Heinzl2002TheLE, title={The Light-Cone Effective Potential}, author={Th. Heinzl}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2002} }

It is shown how to calculate simple vacuum diagrams in light-cone quantum field theory. As an application, I consider the one-loop effective potential of phi^4 theory. The standard result is recovered both with and without the inclusion of zero modes having longitudinal momentum k^+ = 0.

We propose a way to recover Lorentz invariance of the perturbative S matrix in the Discrete Light-Cone Quantization (DLCQ) in the continuum limit without spoiling the trivial vacuum.
