Part of the NATO Science Series book series (NAII, volume 83)


We introduce some techniques to investigate dynamical mass generation. The Gross- Neveumodel [1] (GN) is used as a toy model, because the GN mass gap is exactly known [2], making it possible to check reliability of the various methods. Very accurate results are obtained. Also application to SU(N) Yang-Mills (YM) is discussed.
