Abstract

We show that a class of strongly coupled lattice gauge theories with fermions in real representations of the gauge group do not have chiral symmetry breaking. The resulting spectrum of massless composite fermions satisfies 't Hooft's constraints if the model is naively extrapolated to the continuum limit. We argue that it is in fact the correct spectrum of the continuum gauge theory.
