(Non-)Abelian discrete anomalies. (English) Zbl 1190.81122
Summary: We derive anomaly constraints for Abelian and non-Abelian discrete symmetries using the path integral approach. We survey anomalies of discrete symmetries in heterotic orbifolds and find a new relation between such anomalies and the so-called ‘anomalous’ \(U(1)\).
