Ultraviolet Behavior of Non-Abelian Gauge Theories

Phys. Rev. Lett. 30, 1343 – Published 25 June 1973
David J. Gross and Frank Wilczek


It is shown that a wide class of non-Abelian gauge theories have, up to calculable logarithmic corrections, free-field-theory asymptotic behavior. It is suggested that Bjorken scaling may be obtained from strong-interaction dynamics based on non-Abelian gauge symmetry.
