  • About the Edition

    In this book the authors develop and work out applications to gravity and gauge theories and their interactions with generic matter fields, including spinors in full detail. Spinor fields in particular appear to be the prototypes of truly gauge-natural objects, which are not purely gauge nor purely natural, so that they are a paradigmatic example of the intriguing relations between gauge natural geometry and physical phenomenology. In particular, the gauge natural framework for spinors is developed in this book in full detail, and it is shown to be fundamentally related to the interaction between fermions and dynamical tetrad gravity.

    Francaviglia, M. This paper is the first step towards developing the perturbative quantization of such theories on manifolds with boundary in a way consistent with gluing. For example, in Bell's de Broglie-Bohm-type model for lattice quantum field theory [4], the ontology in space-time is given by the "fermion numbers" on the lattice sites and there is nothing representing the gauge degrees of freedom. One may also make a classification of the charges of the fields under internal symmetries. One approach that also should have consideredin this chapter, but wasn't, is reduced phase space quantization. As Healey rightly notes, this is only an initial survey.

Partition functions of this theory are invariant under subdivisions, satisfy a version of the quantum master equation, and satisfy Atiyah-Segal-type gluing formula with respect to composition of cobordisms. This is illustrated by Healey's discussion of Mattingly's proposal of a priviledged vector potential, called the "current field". Having this additional information it is perhaps easier for you to give me some hints where to start in literature. In the case of electromagnetism, which is an Abelian Yang-Mills theory, these holonomies are gauge independent. We prove that cutting a surface e.

    Our approach is inspired by path integral approach in quantum mechanics, and calculations are mostly combinatorial. A more recent alternative mathematical formalism describes classical fields as sections of mathematical objects called fiber bundles. Mnev, "Discrete BF theory," arXiv As Healey rightly notes, this is only an initial survey. The form of the potential depends on the properties of a usually more general field theory which includes the scalar field. In this paper we outline the construction of semiclassical eigenfunctions of integrable models in terms of the semiclassical path integral for the Poisson sigma model with the target space being the phase space of the integrable system.

Natural and gauge natural formalism for classical field theories book

Michor, J. In the first half of the book the first four chaptersHealey considers classical gauge fields. The second view is considered in more detail, with distinction of various approaches including those of Leeds, Maudlin and Mattinglybut is finally rejected, basically on the ground of underdetermination: gauge equivalent potentials would yield different properties that can not be distinguished by observable facts.

A physical field can be thought of as the assignment of a physical quantity at each point of space and time. To answer the last question, the theory of homogenous and inhomogeneous gauge transformations is worked out in this book on the basis of the canonical transformation theory for fields elaborated before.

In particular, we connect the BV construction in the bulk with the BFV construction on the boundary and we develop its extension to strata of higher codimension in the case of manifolds with corners. Janyska, Reduction theorems for general linear connections,Diff.

In particular, we allow for Wilson lines to end on the boundary of the space-time manifold. Gray Principle of least action. In the case of the bosonic fields, the Lagrangian is usually assumed to contain the derivatives of fields only up to the second order, while in the case of the fermionic fields it is of the first order in derivatives.

Gauging What's Real: The Conceptual Foundations of Gauge Theories

Healey presents two arguments against the first view. Wallace and C. Healey intended the book to be self-contained, with extended appendices serving this goal. In the toy model of 1D Chern-Simons theory, the quantized BFV boundary action coincides with the Kostant cubic Dirac operator which plays an important role in representation theory.

If there is a symmetry of the problem, not involving space-time, under which these components transform into each other, then this set of symmetries is called an internal symmetry. In this paper we outline the construction of semiclassical eigenfunctions of integrable models in terms of the semiclassical path integral for the Poisson sigma model with the target space being the phase space of the integrable system.

One important homological algebra technique that allows one to construct mathematically the path integral quantization of gauge theories and, in particular, topological field theories is the Batalin-Vilkovisky formalism.are trying to build theories of elementary particles and elementary interactions as field theories of quantum objects or quantum field theories.

May 01,  · The most physically relevant field theories — gauge theory on principal bundles, gravitation theory on natural bundles, theory of spinor fields and topological field theory — are presented in a complete way.

This book is designed for theoreticians and mathematical physicists specializing in. In classical field theory one instead studies functionals on mapping spaces on higher dimensional domains.

Classical gauge theory. Of particular interest are classical field theories that are gauge theories. A powerful formalism for handling these is provided by BV theory, which effectively realizes spaces of classical fields as ∞-Lie algebroids.
