PHY5667 Problem Set #3 (due Tue Sep 14) (1) Consider a nonrelativistic QFT for a fermion ψ . Prove the following identity: h 0 | ˆ T ± ψ ( t 1 ,~x 1 ) ψ ( t 2 ,~x 2 ) ψ ( t 3 ,~x 3 ) ψ ( t 4 ,~x 4 ) ² | 0 i = P ( t 1 ,~x 1 ; t 4 ,~x 4 ) P ( t 2 ,~x 2 ; t 3 ,~x 3 ) - P ( t 1 ,~x 1 ; t 3 ,~x 3 ) P ( t 2 ,~x 2 ; t 4 ,~x 4 ) , where the function P is the propagator for ψ , i.e., P ( t,~x ; t 0 ,~x 0 ) = Z d ω 2 π d 3 ~ k (2 π ) 3 i ω - k 2 2 m + i ε e i ~ k · ( ~x - ~x 0 ) - i ω ( t - t 0 ) (2) Again, consider a nonrelativistic QFT for a fermion ψ . Reduce the time-ordered prod- uct h 0 | ˆ T ± ψ ( t 1 ,~x 1 ) ψ ( t 2 ,~x 2 ) ψ ( t 3 ,~x 3 ) ψ ( t 4 ,~x 4 ) ψ ( t 5 ,~x 5 ) ψ ( t 6 ,~x 6 ) ² | 0 i to a form containing only propagators, as in question (1). Be sure to simplify your expression as much as possible. (3) Prove the following identity for a nonrelativistic field
