In science:

In order to calculate the Green’s function G(p, E ), it is useful to divide up all self energies Σ into two main classes: those which do not involve helicity flip (except in sub-diagrams) Σno f lip and those where the outermost “gluon” loop does involve double helicity flip Σf lip .
Dynamical vertex mass generation and chiral symmetry breaking on the light-front
Then gaugino masses arise from one-loop diagrams involving these heavy particles, and scalar masses arise from two-loop diagrams in which the loop of heavy particles appears in a scalar self-energy diagram.
