Hi,

if I enter

Tr1a = Tr[GS[P1].GS[P2].GS[P3].GA[i].(1 - GA[5])];

Tr2a = Tr[GS[Q1].GS[Q2].GS[Q3].GA[i].(1 - GA[5])];

Tr3a = Tr[

GS[P1].GS[P2].GS[P3].GA[i].GS[Q1].GS[Q2].GS[Q3].GA[i].(1 - GA[5])];

then

Result = Simplify[Contract[Tr1a.Tr2a + 2 Tr3a]] // Schouten

indeed returns zero.

Cheers,

Vladyslav
