The Dressing Field Method of Gauge Symmetry Reduction, a Review with Examples
Gauge symmetries are a cornerstone of modern physics but they come with technical difficulties when it comes to quantization, to accurately describe particles phenomenology or to extract observables
Dilaton from tractor and matter field from twistor
A bstractConformal tractors and twistors can be obtained via gauge reduction of the conformal Cartan geometry, thanks to the dressing field method. Perhaps surprisingly, it is possible to reduce the
Bundle geometry of the connection space, covariant Hamiltonian formalism, the problem of boundaries in gauge theories, and the dressing field method
We take advantage of the principal bundle geometry of the space of connections to obtain general results on the presymplectic structure of two classes of (pure) gauge theories: invariant theories,

Note on the bundle geometry of field space, variational connections, the dressing field method, & presymplectic structures of gauge theories over bounded regions
Abstract In this note, we consider how the bundle geometry of field space interplays with the covariant phase space methods so as to allow to write results of some generality on the presymplectic
Tractors and Twistors from conformal Cartan geometry: a gauge theoretic approach I. Tractors
Tractor and Twistor bundles provide natural conformally covariant calculi on 4D-Riemannian manifolds. They have different origins but are closely related, and usually constructed bottom–up through

We compute all possible anomalous terms in quantum gauge theory in the natural class of polynomials of differential forms. By using the appropriate cohomological and algebraic methods, we do it for
