Hi!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a process with multiple feynman diagrams where gluon propagators occur. When I use an axial gauge for the gluon propagator, do I have to use the same n-vector for every propagator? Following this I wonder whether I can use the same n-vector for every polarization sum in axial gauge or have to take different ones.

Thanks, Tobias

gauge field propagator in general axial gauge:

[tex]

G_{\mu\nu}^{ab}(q,\alpha)=\frac{-i\delta^{ab}}{q^{2}}\left(-g^{\mu\nu}-\frac{q_{\mu}n_{\nu}+q_{\nu}n_{\mu}}{qn}+q_{\mu}q_{\nu}\frac{n^{2}+\alpha q^{2}}{(qn)^{2}}\right)

[/tex]
