BRST Quantization of the Proca Model based on the BFT and the BFV Formalism


The BRST quantization of the Abelian Proca model is performed using the BatalinFradkin-Tyutin and the Batalin-Fradkin-Vilkovisky formalism. First, the BFT Hamiltonian method is applied in order to systematically convert a second class constraint system of the model into an effectively first class one by introducing new fields. In finding the involutive… (More)
