The general solution is found for Weinberg's differential equation for the Lagrangian of chiral symmetry breaking. The result is an elementary function, and, in the particular case of a tensor of rank 2, the effect of the nonlinearity is to multiply the ordinary Lagrangian by a simple factor. 3 pp.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation paper series. The paper was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1948 to 2003 that captured speeches, memorials, and derivative research, usually prepared on authors' own time and meant to be the scholarly or scientific contribution of individual authors to their professional fields. Papers were less formal than reports and did not require rigorous peer review.
