Chiral Invariance and Low-Energy Pion-Pion Scattering

  • H. Lehmann
Part of the Acta Physica Austriaca book series (FEWBODY, volume 11/1973)


The foundations of chiral invariance and its relation to current algebra are well-known since a number of years. Several excellent review articles or lecture notes1 are available. I recommend them to those among the audience who wish to study the subject in a systematic manner.
