As seen from our short discussion, once the Dyson–Schwinger equation (or Ward–Takahashi identity) is derived from the path integral for generating functionals, further functional manipulations (transitions to connected, OPI Green functions etc) have no direct relationship with the main object of this book, the path integral. , Itzykson and Zuber (1980) and Vasiliev (1998)). However, we shall meet important concrete applications of these methods combined with the path-integral formalism in the subsequent sections.
126) Quantum field theory: the path-integral approach 28 where Z ϕ is the field renormalization constant and we assumed for simplicity that all pi = k j (in the general case, additional terms corresponding to zero scattering angle appear).
