A group-theoretic approach to chiral transformations

  • C. J. Isham


Nonlinear transformations of meson fields under any chiral group are derived in which the fields appear as a local co-ordinate system on a differentiable manifold. The techniques are extended to include any multiplet of nucleon fields.

Si deducono trasformazioni non lineari di campi mesonici rispetto a qualsiasi gruppo chirale, nelle quali trasformazioni i campi compaiono come un sistema locale di coordinate su una molteplicità differenziabile. Si estendono le tecniche in modo da includere ogni multipletto di campi nucleonici.
