Quantization of Gauge Systems

- M. Henneaux, C. Teitelboim
- Mathematics
- 8 November 1992

This is a systematic study of the classical and quantum theories of gauge systems. It starts with Dirac's analysis showing that gauge theories are constrained Hamiltonian systems. The classical… Expand

Central charges in the canonical realization of asymptotic symmetries: An example from three dimensional gravity

- J. Brown, M. Henneaux
- Mathematics
- 1 June 1986

It is shown that the global charges of a gauge theory may yield a nontrivial central extension of the asymptotic symmetry algebra already at the classical level. This is done by studying three… Expand

Asymptotically anti-de Sitter spaces

- M. Henneaux, C. Teitelboim
- Physics
- 1 September 1985

Asymptotically anti-de Sitter spaces are defined by boundary conditions on the gravitational field which obey the following criteria: (i) they are O(3, 2) invariant; (ii) they make the O(3, 2)… Expand

E10 and a small tension expansion of m theory.

- T. Damour, M. Henneaux, H. Nicolai
- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 30 July 2002

A formal "small tension" expansion of D=11 supergravity near a spacelike singularity is shown to be equivalent, at least up to 30th order in height, to a null geodesic motion in the… Expand

Local BRST cohomology in gauge theories

- G. Barnich, Friedemann Brandt, M. Henneaux
- Physics
- 29 February 2000

Abstract The general solution of the anomaly consistency condition (Wess–Zumino equation) has been found recently for Yang–Mills gauge theory. The general form of the counterterms arising in the… Expand

Nonlinear W∞ as asymptotic symmetry of three-dimensional higher spin AdS gravity

- M. Henneaux, S. Rey
- Physics, Mathematics
- 26 August 2010

We investigate the asymptotic symmetry algebra of (2+1)-dimensional higher spin, anti-de Sitter gravity. We use the formulation of the theory as a Chern-Simons gauge theory based on the higher spin… Expand

Cosmological Billiards

- T. Damour, M. Henneaux, H. Nicolai
- Physics
- 20 December 2002

It is shown in detail that the dynamics of the Einstein-dilaton-p-form system in the vicinity of a spacelike singularity can be asymptotically described, at a generic spatial point, as a billiard… Expand

Dynamics of chiral (self-dual) p-forms

- M. Henneaux, C. Teitelboim
- Physics
- 24 June 1988

Abstract An action principle describing the dynamics of a p-form gauge field whose field strength is self-dual is given. The action is local, Lorentz invariant and also invariant under the standard… Expand

The asymptotic dynamics of three-dimensional Einstein gravity with a negative cosmological constant

- O. Coussaert, M. Henneaux, P. V. Driel
- Physics
- 8 June 1995

Liouville theory is shown to describe the asymptotic dynamics of three-dimensional Einstein gravity with a negative cosmological constant. This is because (i) Chern - Simons theory with a gauge group… Expand

Consistent couplings between fields with a gauge freedom and deformations of the master equation

- G. Barnich, M. Henneaux
- Physics
- 14 April 1993

Abstract The antibracket in the antifield-BRST formalism is known to define a map H p × H q → H p + q + 1 associating with two equivalence classes of BRST invariant observables of respective ghost… Expand
