Equivalence of stochastic quantization and the Faddeev-Popov Ansatz

L. Baulieu, Daniel Zwanziger

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    We prove the equivalence of stochastic quantization to the Faddeev-Popov ansatz for covariant and axial gauges. A principal ingredient of the proof is a theorem which asserts that, for a certain large class of stochastic processes, the time-dependent distribution relaxes to an equilibrium distribution.
