Abstract

We demonstrate that, in 1+1 dimensions, the effective action produced by massless fermions moving in external gauge potentials is identical with that produced by a suitably defined model which includes a Wess-Zumino term. Hence the current correlation functions of the fermion and boson theories are identical.
