    • n anti A prefix of Greek origin: originally only in compounds or derivatives taken from the Greek or formed of Greek elements, as in antipathy, antinomy, etc. (the earliest example in English being antichrist, which see), but now a familiar English formative, meaning primarily against, opposed to. It forms — Compound nouns (with the accent on the prefix), in which anti- has the attributive force of opposed to, opponent, opposite, counter, as in antichrist, antipope, antichorus, anticyclone, antipole, etc.
    • n anti One who is opposed to some proposed or undertaken course of action, policy, measure, movement, or enactment, as, for example, to imperialism.
    • n anti In chem., a prefix used to indicate that two groups or two atoms which might react with each other are so separated in space that they do not readily do this. It is contrasted with the prefix syn-. Thus in antibenzaldoxime, the H and OH do not readily combine to form water, while in synbenzaldoxime, such a combination takes place easily.

Random Matrix Theory and Chiral Symmetry in QCD
Third, we consider the anti-unitary symmetries of the Dirac operator.
Random Matrix Theory and Chiral Symmetry in QCD
According to a fundamental theorem by Wigner, a symmetry in quantum mechanics is either unitary or anti-unitary.
Random Matrix Theory and Chiral Symmetry in QCD
An anti-unitary symmetry operator A can always be written as A = U K , where U is a unitary operator and K is the complex conjugation operator.
Random Matrix Theory and Chiral Symmetry in QCD
If A = U K is an anti-unitary symmetry of the Dirac operator, then the symmetry operator A2 = (U K )2 = U U ∗ is unitary, and in an irreducible subspace it is necessarily a multiple of the identity, U U ∗ = λ1.
Random Matrix Theory and Chiral Symmetry in QCD
Therefore, the anti-unitary symmetries can be classified according to the sign of A2 .
Random Matrix Theory and Chiral Symmetry in QCD
For QCD with Nc ≥ 3 and fermions in the fundamental representation of the gauge group, there are no anti-unitary operators that commute with the Dirac operator.
Random Matrix Theory and Chiral Symmetry in QCD
There are two cases with nontrivial anti-unitary symmetries: QCD with two colors and fermions in the fundamental representation, and QCD with any number of colors and adjoint fermions.
Random Matrix Theory and Chiral Symmetry in QCD
As mentioned in Sec. 2.2.3, there may be cases in which the anti-unitary symmetries of the various lattice discretizations of the Dirac operator differ from those of the continuum operator.
Random Matrix Theory and Chiral Symmetry in QCD
Random Matrix Triality at µ 6= 0 In previous sections, we have shown that the pattern of chiral symmetry breaking and the correlations of the Dirac eigenvalues are related to the anti-unitary symmetries of the Dirac operator.
