# A pure Dirac's method for Yang-Mills expressed as a constrained BF-like theory

@article{Escalante2013APD, title={A pure Dirac's method for Yang-Mills expressed as a constrained BF-like theory}, author={Alberto Escalante and Jasel Berra}, journal={arXiv: Mathematical Physics}, year={2013} }

A pure Dirac's method of Yang-Mills expressed as a constrained BF-like theory is performed. In this paper we study an action principle composed by the coupling of two topological BF-like theories, which at the Lagrangian level reproduces Yang-Mills equations. By a pure Dirac's method we mean that we consider all the variables that occur in the Lagrangian density as dynamical variables and not only those ones that involve temporal derivatives. The analysis in the complete phase space enable us…
