  • We study chiral symmetry breaking in three-dimensional QED with {ital N}{sub {ital f}} flavors of four-component fermions. A closed system of Schwinger-Dyson equations for fermion and photon propagators and the full fermion-photon vertex is proposed, which is consistent with the Ward-Takahashi identity. A simplified version of that set of equations is reduced (in the nonlocal gauge) to the equation for a dynamical fermion mass function, where the one-loop vacuum polarization with dynamically massive fermions has been taken into account. The linearized equation for the fermion mass function is analyzed in real space. The analytical solution is compared with the resultsmore » of numerical calculations of the nonlinear integral equation in momentum space. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}« less
  • Vortical nonstationary viscous incompressible flows in the space between coaxial cylinders or hemispherical segments rotating with a constant angular acceleration about a stationary axis of symmetry are analyzed numerically for Reynolds number Re=1-10. It is shown that laminar circulating motions are realized. Two vortices form in the flow. The positions of these vortices depend substantially on the geometry of the rotating cavity.
  • The optimized expansion for the generating functional for Green's functions in the path-integral representation is formulated in quantum field theory of fermions with a scalar Fermi interaction and compared with different expansion techniques. The effective action in n-dimensional space-time is calculated to the first order. Renormalization can be performed if the space-time dimension is less than four. In this case, the renormalized effective potential at a finite temperature is calculated to first order. The results suggest that the theory in two- and three-dimensional space-time is noninteracting or precarious.
  • We present an analytical calculation of additional real or virtual radiation of a light fermion pair in the fermionic decay of the Higgs boson {ital H}{r_arrow}{ital f}{sub 1}{bar {ital f}}{sub 1} for arbitrary ratios of the Higgs boson mass to the {ital f}{sub 1} fermion mass. This result gives us a value of the {ital O}({ital N}{sub {ital f}}{alpha}{sup 2}{sub {ital s}}) radiative correction to the inclusive decay rate {ital H}{r_arrow}{ital f}{sub 1}{bar {ital f}}{sub 1}. Using this result in the framework of the Brodsky-Mackenzie-Lepage scheme, we discuss the question of the scale setting in the one-loop QCD correction tomore » the decay width {ital H}{r_arrow}{ital f}{sub 1}{bar {ital f}}{sub 1} for an arbitrary relation between the Higgs boson and fermion masses. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}« less
