The primary target of physics is an knowing of the forces of nature of their easiest and such a lot common phrases. but there's even more concerned than simply a easy set of equations which finally needs to be solved whilst utilized to express difficulties. we now have realized in recent times that the constitution of the floor country of box theories (with which we're commonly involved) performs an both funda psychological function because the equations of movement themselves. Heisenberg was once most likely the 1st to acknowledge that the floor country, the vacuum, may possibly collect convinced prop erties (quantum numbers) while he devised a thought of ferromagnetism. considering that then, many extra such examples are identified in reliable country physics, e. g. supercon ductivity, superfluidity, actually all difficulties concerned about part transitions of many-body structures, that are usually summarized lower than the identify synergetics. encouraged by means of the experimental statement that still primary symmetries, resembling parity or chiral symmetry, can be violated in nature, it has develop into vast ly accredited that an analogous box conception should be in line with diversified vacua. sensible ly a majority of these diversified box levels have the prestige of kind of hypothetical types, now not (yet) without delay obtainable to experiments. there's one outstanding ex ception and this can be the switch of the floor country (vacuum) of the electron-posi tron box in superstrong electrical fields.

This can be seen by noting that an external potential comparable in strength to the mass of the pion R mna -1 - 2000 is needed. Here R describes the nuclear size. This formula is valid only if R mn > 1 and therefore does not apply to electrons bound in the nuclear Coulomb field. Synder and Weinberg successfully introduced a second quantization of the theory for potentials smaller than Vcr but made no attempt to treat the overcritical case [Sn 40]. The modern development of the subject which led to present understanding of the supercritical state for pions was stimulated by the work on the overcritical Dirac equation.
In general, non-Abelian gauge theories such as the Einstein-Cartan theory or Yang-Mills theories introduce a complicated and rich vacuum structure into the Dirac system [So 82c]. The complications arise from the gauge freedom: gauge non-equivalent potentials may lead to identical field strengths but to different behaviour of the Dirac field. On the other hand, locally gauge-equivalent potentials may lead to different vacuum structures distinguishable by global, topological properties. For example, a uniformly accelerated observer could measure particles in the Minkowski vacuum.
