Invisible Axions?

Abstract

Consider the lagrangian of QCD
$$ {\wp _{QCD}} = \frac{{ - 1}}{4}G_{\mu \nu }^a{G^{a\mu \nu }} + \frac{{\theta {g^2}}}{{32{\pi ^2}}}G_{\mu \upsilon }^a{\tilde G^{a\mu \nu }} + \sum\limits_{i = 1}^n {\left[ {{{\bar q}_i}{r^\mu }{D_\mu }{q_i} - {m_i}q_{Li}^\dag {q_{Ri}} - m_i^ * q_{Ri}^ * - m_i^ * q_{Ri}^\dag {q_{Li}}} \right]} $$
(I)
Where \( \tilde G_{\mu \nu }^a = \frac{1}{2}{\varepsilon _{\mu \nu \alpha \beta }}{G^{a\alpha \beta }} \) The second term is a 4-divergence.
