Dynamical (Chiral) Symmetry Breaking

The present subsection is located within the section on quantum fields, but in fact, we tell here a much more general story. Dynamical (or sometimes called - spontaneous) symmetry breaking is a leading theme of a multitude of quantum effects. The very simple model we consider here is a perfect illustration of what is meant by the dynamical symmetry breaking, and moreover it explicitly illustrates the breaking of the chiral symmetry.
