Chiral symmetry and lattice fermions
This chapter discusses chiral symmetry in quantum field theories with fermions, and how to represent the fermions in lattice regularizations so as to preserve the symmetry to the fullest extent possible. The importance of anomalies as a guide and constraint on how lattice theories can realize chiral symmetries is emphasized. These considerations lead to the construction of Domain Wall and Overlap fermions, and a discussion of the Ginsparg-Wilson equation.
