(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); can someone help me with dynamical mass generation???

In QFT-textbooks, the process of dynamical mass-generation is often used.

For example one gets an effective quarkmass as a solution of the Schwinger

Dysonequation. This mass is dependent on the quarks momentum.

The effective quarkmass as a function of the momentum gives an image of the

interaction between a quark and its surrounding virtual particles. For

low-energy quarks, the strong force coupling constant is very large because

of asymptotic freedom. So in this condition, many virtual particles become

real because of the strong interaction and thus quarkmass is generated.

Is this conclusion right or am I making e few mistakes here?

Can anyone give me a clear definition of the effective quarkmass, what does

is really mean?

How is mass generated dynamically

Thanks a lot
