Anomalies in Quantum Field Theory

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by introducing the Bardeen–Zummo polynomial, which relates the consistent- to the covariant anomaly. It discusses the features of the covariant type. This discussion is reformulated using differential forms on the space-time maniforld M (Section 10.2) as well as differential forms on the Sp (Capital Alpha), the space of all gauge connections (Section 10.3). Finally, the chapter extends the anomalies to nonlocal forms over Sp Α‎).

Keywords:   covariant anomaly, Bardeen–Zummo polynomial, space-time manifold
