New answers tagged anomaly
I think 't Hooft and Kugo are solving different problems. 't Hooft addresses the issue that the anomaly involves a topological term. As a result, in perturbation theory there is no theta dependence and the anomaly equation by itself does not solve the $U(1)$ problem. He shows that topological objects (semi-classically, instantons) generate theta ...
