# Renormalization of the flavor-singlet axial-vector current and its anomaly in QCD

@inproceedings{Chen2021RenormalizationOT, title={Renormalization of the flavor-singlet axial-vector current and its anomaly in QCD}, author={Long Chen}, year={2021} }

The renormalization constant ZJ of the flavor-singlet axial-vector current with a non-anticommuting γ5 in dimensional regularization is determined to order α 3 s in QCD with massless quarks. In addition, the equality between the MS renormalization constant ZF F̃ associated with the operator F F̃ R and that of αs is verified explicitly to hold true at 4-loop order.
