*> Dear Prffesior,

*

*> Can such things be done with feynCalc? Plese let me know.

More than 16 years after the original question, the answer is yes, with FeynCalc 9.3 (aka the current development version) this will be possible.

For example (TGA[] is gamma^0, CGA[i] is gamma^i)

Tr[CGA[i].CGA[j]] (i.e. the trace of two Dirac matrices with Cartesian indices)

yields

-4 CartesianPair[CartesianIndex[i], CartesianIndex[j]]

where CartesianPair[CartesianIndex[i], CartesianIndex[j]] signifies a Kronecker delta

Then

DiracSimplify[TGA[].TGA[]]

yields 1, since gamma^0 gamma^0 =1, while

DiracSimplify[CGA[i, j, i, j]] (i.e. g^i g^j g^i g^j

gives -3

This still needs some testing, performance improvements and a proper documentation,

but this is a work in progress to be completed soon.

Cheers,

Vladyslav
