Hamiltonian Approach to the Theory of Anomalies

  • L. Faddeev


It is used to speak of anomaly if a particular symmetry of the classical field theory is not satisfied after quantization. In these lectures I shall consider some recent developments in the case of nonabelian anomaly, namely the breaking of the gauge invariance in the model of the Weyl fermions interacting with the Yang-Mills field. The literature on this subject is quite numerous and I can refer to original monograph [1] and review articles in [2].
