Symmetry Enforced Gaplessness in Quantum Field Theory 

Abstract: Anomalies are powerful constraints on the behavior of quantum field theories. In particular, certain anomalies imply that a QFT is either gapless or spontaneously breaks its global symmetry. We review these ideas and apply them to learn about chiral symmetry breaking in gauge theories.
