Nambu–JonaLasinio model
In quantum field theory, the Nambu–JonaLasinio model or more precisely: the Nambu and JonaLasinio model is a complicated effective theory of nucleons and mesons constructed from interacting Dirac fermions with chiral symmetry, paralleling the construction of Cooper pairs from electrons in the BCS theory of superconductivity The "complicatedness" of the theory has become more natural as it is now seen as a lowenergy approximation of the still more basic theory of quantum chromodynamics, which does not work perturbatively at low energies

Overview
The model is much inspired by the different field of solid state theory, particularly from the BCS breakthrough of 1957 The first inventor of the Nambu–JonaLasinio model, Yoichiro Nambu, also contributed essentially to the theory of superconductivity, ie, by the "Nambu formalism" The second inventor was Giovanni JonaLasinio The common paper of the authors that introduced the model appeared in 1961 A subsequent paper included chiral symmetry breaking, isospin and strangeness At the same time, the same model was independently considered by Soviet physicists Valentin Vaks and Anatoly Larkin
The model is quite technical, although based essentially on symmetry principles It is an example of the importance of fourfermion interactions and is defined in a spacetime with an even number of dimensions It is still important and is used primarily as an effective although not rigorous low energy substitute for quantum chromodynamics
The dynamical creation of a condensate from fermion interactions inspired many theories of the breaking of electroweak symmetry, such as technicolor and the topquark condensate
Starting with the oneflavor case first, the Lagrangian density is
L = i ψ ¯ ∂ / ψ + λ 4 [ ψ ¯ ψ ψ ¯ ψ − ψ ¯ γ 5 ψ ψ ¯ γ 5 ψ ] = i ψ ¯ L ∂ / ψ L + i ψ ¯ R ∂ / ψ R + λ ψ ¯ L ψ R ψ ¯ R ψ L }=\,i\,}\partial \!\!\!/\psi +}\,\left=\,i\,}_\partial \!\!\!/\psi _+\,i\,}_\partial \!\!\!/\psi _+\lambda \,\left}_\psi _\right\left}_\psi _\right}The terms proportional to λ are the fourfermion interactions, which parallel the BCS theory The global symmetry of the model is U1Q×U1χ where Q is the ordinary charge of the Dirac fermion and χ is the chiral charge
There is no bare mass term because of the chiral symmetry However, there will be a chiral condensate but no confinement leading to an effective mass term and a spontaneous symmetry breaking of the chiral symmetry, but not the charge symmetry
With N flavors and the flavor indices represented by the Latin letters a, b, c, the Lagrangian density becomes
L = i ψ ¯ a ∂ / ψ a + λ 4 N [ ψ ¯ a ψ b ψ ¯ b ψ a − ψ ¯ a γ 5 ψ b ψ ¯ b γ 5 ψ a ] = i ψ ¯ L a ∂ / ψ L a + i ψ ¯ R a ∂ / ψ R a + λ N ψ ¯ L a ψ R b ψ ¯ R b ψ L a }=\,i\,}_\partial \!\!\!/\psi ^+}\,\left=\,i\,}_\partial \!\!\!/\psi _^+\,i\,}_\partial \!\!\!/\psi _^+}\,\left}_\psi _^\right\left}_\psi _^\right}Chiral symmetry forbids a bare mass term, but there may be chiral condensates The global symmetry here is SUNL×SUNR× U1Q × U1χ where SUNL×SUNR acting upon the lefthanded flavors and righthanded flavors respectively is the chiral symmetry in other words, there is no natural correspondence between the lefthanded and the righthanded flavors, U1Q is the Dirac charge, which is sometimes called the baryon number and U1χ is the axial charge If a chiral condensate forms, then the chiral symmetry is spontaneously broken into a diagonal subgroup SUN since the condensate leads to a pairing of the lefthanded and the righthanded flavors The axial charge is also spontaneously broken
The broken symmetries lead to massless pseudoscalar bosons which are sometimes called pions See Goldstone boson
As mentioned, this model is sometimes used as a phenomenological model of quantum chromodynamics in the chiral limit However, while it is able to model chiral symmetry breaking and chiral condensates, it does not model confinement Also, the axial symmetry is broken spontaneously in this model, leading to a massless Goldstone boson unlike QCD, where it is broken anomalously
Since the Nambu–JonaLasinio model is nonrenormalizable in four spacetime dimensions, this theory can only be an effective field theory which needs to be UV completed
