In this text, differential aspects of dynamical symmetry breaking (DSB) in quantum field theory are discussed in detail. A deep connection between this phenomenon in condensed matter physics and particle physics is emphasized. Applications of DSB to such realistic theories as chromo-dynamics and electroweak interactions are also considered. Problems intimately connected with DSB (anomalies, effective lagrangian approach) are also discussed.
