Does chiral symmetry imply parity-doubled states?

  • A. I. Solomon


It is proposed that a spontaneously broken symmetry is recovered in the high-energy limit.

Подразумевает ли чиральная симметрия состояния с удвоенной четностью?


Предполагается, что спонтанно нарушенная симметрия восста-навливается в пределе высоких эн]yeргий.


Si fa l'ipotesi che una simmetria spontaneamente rotta sia ritrovata nel limite di alta energia.

    This argument only applies in so far as the higher baryon resonances may be considered as excited states of a fundamental set of fields. It is only the latter that appear in the Lagrangian. The fundamental fields can have arbitrary mass, and need not be chiral doublets.Google Scholar
