Mathematical aspects of UA(1) breaking in effective multi-quark interactions

The six-quark instanton induced 't Hooft interaction, which breaks the unwanted UA(1) symmetry of QCD is also a source of perturbative corrections. A detailed quantitative calculation is carried out using the functional integral method to bosonize the effective fermion interactions of the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio type. The resulting corrections may be important for the low-energy spectrum and dynamics of the scalar and pseudoscalar nonets.
