By Octavio Junqueira and others

We study a spontaneous symmetry breaking mechanism for a topological quantum field theory based on the twisted *\mathcal{N} = 2* super-Yang-Mills theory. Specifically, by employing Fujikawa's Becchi-Rouet-Stora-Tyutin mechanism, local degrees of freedom are released. In fact, a trivial potential in the equivariant cohomology is introduced. Such potential displays a nontrivial... Show more
