  • An action for chiral lattice fermions is proposed, which avoids the Nielsen-Ninomiya theorem by virtue of its nonlocality and nonbilinearity. The action is constructed by eliminating the extra fermion modes with a gauge-violating Majorana-type Wilson mass, which is then rendered invariant by an integration over gauge transformations. The free propagator is calculated, and the one-loop vacuum polarization is shown to be identical to that for Wilson fermions, even at nonzero lattice spacing. Also the chiral anomaly is shown to be the same as for Wilson fermions in the continuum limit.
  • The chiral properties of the pseudoscalar mesons are studied numerically on a quenched 20{sup 4} lattice with the overlap fermion. We elucidate the role of the zero modes in the meson propagators, particularly that of the pseudoscalar meson. The non-perturbative renormalization constant Z{sub A} is determined from the axial Ward identity and the pion decay constants f{sub {pi}} is calculated from which we determine the lattice spacing to be 0.157 fm.. We look for quenched chiral log in the pseudoscalar decay constants and the pseudoscalar masses for both equal and unequal quark masses. We find that, given limited statistics, itmore » is difficult to see quenched logs in pseudoscalar masses with equal or unequal quark masses. Whereas, it is relatively clear to see them in the pseudoscalar matrix element and the ratio of the pseudoscalar matrix element to f{sub {pi}}. The chiral log parameter delta turns out to be consistent with that predicted from quenched chiral perturbative theory.« less
  • We study a chiral anomaly based on lattice gauge theory with Wilson fermions. A random-walk technique is used at a one-plaquette level. The possibility to define an appropriately normalized axial-vector current is discussed. The {l angle}{ital AVV}{r angle} correlation function consists of a massless pion-pole term and a contact term. Although the contact term is not determined uniquely, the pion-pole term is calculated without ambiguity.
  • We describe a possible creation of an odd number of fractionally charged fermions in the 1+1 dimensional Abelian Higgs model. We point out that for 1+1 dimensions this process does not violate any symmetries of the theory, nor makes it mathematically inconsistent. We construct the proper definition of the fermionic determinant in this model and outline how to generalize it for calculation of preexponent in realistic mathematically consistent 3+1 dimensional models with the creation of an even number of fermions.
