Abstract

Now that we have reached the subject of non-local field theory, it is important that we discuss some peculiar features that distinguish it from local field theory. This chapter is based on, and extends, Jaccard et al. (Phys. Rev. D 88:4, 044033, 2013 [1]), Dirian and Mitsou, (JCAP 10:065, 2014 [2]), Foffa et al. (Phys. Lett. B 733:76, 2014 [3]).

Keywords

Gauge Theory Variational Principle Dynamical Field Auxiliary Field Auxiliary Particle 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
