Pure massless electrodynamics in Veltman's gauge

  • A. Rouet


To show how the method developed by C. Becchi, R. Stora and the present author to prove Slavnov's identities in gauge theories works in Abelian cases including a nonlinear gauge without any discrete symmetry, a specific example is worked out, exhibiting the details of the technical procedure.
