Dynamical Mass Generation and Confinement in Maxwell-Chern-Simons Planar Quantum Electrodynamics

By Saúl Sánchez Madrigal, Christoph P. Hofmann and Alfredo Raya

Abstract

We study the non-perturbative phenomena of Dynamical Mass Generation and Confinement by truncating at the non-perturbative level the Schwinger-Dyson equations in Maxwell-Chern-Simons planar quantum electrodynamics. We obtain numerical solutions for the fermion propagator in Landau gauge within the so-called rainbow approximation. A comparison with the ordinary theory without the Chern-Simons term is presented.Comment: 9 pages, 9 figures; prepared for the XIV Mexican School of Particles and Fields, 4-12 November 2010, Morelia, Michoacan, Mexic
