Main Question or Discussion Point
Hi everyone!
I'm having a problem with calculating the fermionic propagator for the quantized Dirac field as in the attached pdf. The step that puzzles me is the one performed at 5.27 to get 5.28. Why can I take outside (iγ⋅∂+m) if the second term in 5.27 has (iγ⋅∂m)? And why there's a difference of the D(xy) and D(yx)?
