  journal={Classical and Quantum Gravity},
Motivated by the study of physical models associated with general relativity, we review some finite-dimensional, geometric and covariant formulations that allow us to characterize in a simple manner the symmetries for classical field theory by implementing an appropriate fibre-bundle structure, either at the Lagrangian, the Hamiltonian multisymplectic or the polysymplectic levels. In particular, we are able to formulate Noether’s theorems by means of the covariant momentum maps and to…

Towards Precanonical Quantum Teleparallel Gravity

Quantization of the teleparallel equivalent of general relativity (TEGR) is discussed from the perspective of the space-time symmetric De Donder-Weyl (DW) Hamiltonian formulation with constraints and

On the covariant Hamilton-Jacobi formulation of Maxwell's equations via the polysymplectic reduction

The covariant Hamilton-Jacobi formulation of Maxwell’s equations is derived from the first-order (Palatini-like) Lagrangian using the analysis of constraints within the De Donder-Weyl covariant

The Geometry of the solution space of first order Hamiltonian field theories I: from particle dynamics to free Electrodynamics

We start the program of defining a Poisson bracket structure on the space of solutions of the equations of motion of first order Hamiltonian field theories. The cases of Hamiltonian mechanical systems

Symmetries and Covariant Poisson Brackets on Presymplectic Manifolds

As the space of solutions of the first-order Hamiltonian field theory has a presymplectic structure, we describe a class of conserved charges associated with the momentum map, determined by a



Covariant Hamiltonian Field Theories on Manifolds with Boundary: Yang-Mills Theories

The multisymplectic formalism of field theories developed by many mathematicians over the last fifty years is extended in this work to deal with manifolds that have boundaries. In particular, we

Covariant momentum map for non-Abelian topological BF field theory

We analyze the inherent symmetries associated to the non-Abelian topological BF theory from the geometric and covariant perspectives of the Lagrangian and the multisymplectic formalisms. At the

Covariant momentum map thermodynamics for parametrized field theories

A general-covariant statistical framework capable of describing classical fluctuations of the gravitational field is a thorny open problem in theoretical physics, yet ultimately necessary to

Momentum Maps and Classical Relativistic Fields. Part II: Canonical Analysis of Field Theories

With the covariant formulation in hand from the first paper of this series (physics/9801019), we begin in this second paper to study the canonical (or ``instantaneous'') formulation of classical

Momentum maps and classical relativistic fields. Part 1: Covariant Field Theory

This is the first paper of a five part work in which we study the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian structure of classical field theories with constraints. Our goal is to explore some of the connections

New multisymplectic approach to the Metric-Affine (Einstein-Palatini) action for gravity

We present a covariant multisymplectic formulation for the Einstein-Palatini (or Metric-Affine) model of General Relativity (without energy-matter sources). As it is described by a first-order affine

Symmetric Space Cartan Connections and Gravity in Three and Four Dimensions

Einstein gravity in both 3 and 4 dimensions, as well as some interesting genera- lizations, can be written as gauge theories in which the connection is a Cartan connection for geometry modeled on a
