Aksz-bv Formalism and Courant Algebroid-induced Topological Field Theories

  title={Aksz-bv Formalism and Courant Algebroid-induced Topological Field Theories},
  • Published 2008
We give a detailed exposition of the Alexandrov-Kontsevich-SchwarzZaboronsky superfield formalism using the language of graded manifolds. As a main illustarting example, to every Courant algebroid structure we associate canonically a three-dimensional topological sigma-model. Using the AKSZ formalism, we construct the Batalin-Vilkovisky master action for the model. 1. Intro and Brief History. The standard procedure for quantizing classical field theories in the Lagrangian approach is by using… CONTINUE READING
