Abstract: For an $ n$-dimensional spin manifold $ M$ with a fixed spin structure and a spinor bundle $ \Sigma M$, we prove an $ \epsilon$-regularity theorem for weak solutions to the nonlinear Dirac equation

$\displaystyle \slashed\partial\psi= H_{jkl}\langle \psi^j, \psi^k\rangle \psi^l,$

of cubic nonlinearity. In particular, it implies that any weak solution is smooth when $ n=2$, which answers a question raised by Chen, Jost, and Wang.
