BRST Symmetry and de Rham Cohomology by Soon-Tae Hong

By Soon-Tae Hong

This e-book presents a complicated advent to prolonged theories of quantum box thought and algebraic topology, together with Hamiltonian quantization linked to a few geometrical constraints, symplectic embedding and Hamilton-Jacobi quantization and Becci-Rouet-Stora-Tyutin (BRST) symmetry, in addition to de Rham cohomology. It bargains a severe evaluation of the study during this sector and unifies the prevailing literature, utilising a constant notation.

Although the consequences offered follow in precept to all replacement quantization schemes, particular emphasis is put on the BRST quantization for limited actual structures and its corresponding de Rham cohomology crew structure. These have been studied by way of theoretical physicists from the early Nineteen Sixties and seemed in makes an attempt to quantize carefully a few actual theories akin to solitons and different types topic to geometrical constraints. particularly, phenomenological soliton theories similar to Skyrmion and chiral bag versions have visible a revival following experimental information from the pattern and HAPPEX Collaborations and those are mentioned. The ebook describes how those version predictions have been proven to incorporate rigorous remedies of geometrical constraints simply because those constraints have an effect on the predictions themselves. the appliance of the BRST symmetry to the de Rham cohomology contributes to a deep realizing of Hilbert house of limited actual theories.

Aimed at graduate-level scholars in quantum box idea, the ebook also will function an invaluable reference for these operating within the field.  an intensive bibliography courses the reader in the direction of the resource literature on specific topics.
