Gauge theories which have a phase transition could be useful in the study of quark confinement. One of the simplest theories containing a phase transition is the Coleman-Weinberg model of massless scalar electrodynamics. The calculation of the renormalized effective potential for the Coleman-Weinberg model is reviewed in detail using the path integral formalism. The effective potential is evaluated at the one-loop level to show that the model exhibits dynamical symmetry breaking at zerodoi:10.14288/1.0095491 fatcat:cnx4rcmcmvfv7ozdpjyklkqt5u
