Abstract

The chiral Ward identities are 'solved' by the gauge technique to determine the axial Green functions in terms of the fermion propagator. After finding the fermion spectral function self-consistently from the field equations, a relation is obtained between the fermion mass and the axial meson mass induced by the dynamical breaking of chiral symmetry.
