Anomalous Condensates and the Equivalence TheoremDOI: 10.1016/03702693(94)902852 Abstract: A recently published report has called into question the validity of the equivalence theorem in dynamically broken gauge theories in which the fermions making up the symmetry breaking condensate lie in an anomalous representation of the broken gauge group. Such a situation can occur if the gauge anomaly is cancelled by another sector of the theory. Using the example of the one family Standard Model without scalar Higgs structure, we analyze a low energy effective theory which preserves the symmetries of the fundamental theory and demonstrate the validity of the equivalence theorem in this class of models.
