Breaking Nambu-Goldstone Chiral Symmetries

  • Heinz Pagels
Part of the Studies in the Natural Sciences book series (SNS, volume 3)


Here we will describe some of the implications of breaking Nambu-Goldstone Chiral symmetries. Most of the work described here, in particular the nonanalytic character of expansions of matrix elements in the symmetry breaking parameters, and the theory of SU (3) violation was worked out in collaboration with Ling-Fong Li at Rockefeller University.1,2,3
