(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Solve the equation. What is it's trace?

2. Relevant equations

[STRIKE]k[/STRIKE] γ_{μ}γ_{5}[STRIKE]o[/STRIKE] γ^{[itex]\nu[/itex]}γ_{5}

3. The attempt at a solution

I dont think this is reduced enough.

γ^{μ}k_{μ}γ_{5}γ^{[itex]\nu[/itex]}o_{[itex]\nu[/itex]}γ^{[itex]\nu[/itex]}γ_{5}

trace: just got rid of gamma5 with anticommutation.

-Tr[γ^{μ}k_{μ}γ^{[itex]\nu[/itex]}o_{[itex]\nu[/itex]}γ^{[itex]\nu[/itex]}]
