In science:

Hence, in the continuum limit the unphysical doublers get an infinite mass, decoupling from the action.
SU(N) gauge theories at large N
The only differences between this and the usual standard model are the presence of the doublers, and an extra neutrino with righthanded chiral symmetry.
Chiral Gauge Theories and Fermion-Higgs Systems
However, as the continuum limit is approached, v scales to zero, and all doublers appear in the physical spectrum.
Chiral Gauge Theories and Fermion-Higgs Systems
In fact, the action is invariant under a generalized fermion shift symmetry which guarantees the decoupling of the 15 doubler fermions, in the same way that the right-handed neutrino decouples in models with the usual shift symmetry.
Chiral Gauge Theories and Fermion-Higgs Systems
It emerges as a necessary consequence of the Wilson formulation for removing the doubler modes.

We begin with a continuum action for fermions which has no doublers and is chirally symmetric.
Tests of Hypercubic Fermion Actions
Because standard domain wall and overlap fermions use Wilson terms to give mass to the doubler species, we might anticipate that similar effects may be seen in the energy density of these fermion formulations.
Thermodynamics of free domain wall and overlap fermions
The Wilson term gives 15 doublers a mass proportional to the cutoff.
Thermodynamics of free domain wall and overlap fermions
But from figure 1, we expect these now massless doublers to make a significant contribution to the overall Wilson energy density until N4 & 8.
Thermodynamics of free domain wall and overlap fermions
Based on arguments of section 3, the reduced excess energy density for domain wall and overlap fermions indicates the participation of the heavy doublers in the thermodynamics is suppressed due to Pauli-Villars term.
