I'm new here, loving this website and I'm having some difficulty with the wilson-loop operator in kitaev's honeycomb model. problem statement The Kitaev model (Kitaev, 2006 is the original paper) ...
In quantization of scalar field theory we impose commutation relation between the field operators by hand and similarly we impose anti-commutation relation between Dirac field operators by hand. As a ...
Why is the anticommutator actually needed in the canonical quantization of free Dirac field?
