Hey all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

just a simple question that's confusing me about amplitudes for feynman diagrams. How do i know whether a system needs to be considered as being on shell, and hence has an imaginary component included in the denominator of the propagator?

If i have one propagator which is required to be on shell, does that mean all propagators in the diagram must now be on shell?

thanks
