An earlier analysis of the Dyson–Schwinger equation for the quark propagator is improved by taking the Slavnov–Taylor identity into account in the ultraviolet. It is found that chiral symmetry breaking occurs above a critical coupling in the Landau gauge; but that this result does not hold in other gauges.
