We develop the basic ideas and equations for the BRST quantization of Yang-Mills theories in an explicit Hamiltonian approach, without any reference to the Lagrangian approach at any stage of the development. We present a new representation of ghost fields that combines desirable selfadjointness properties with canonical anticommutation relations for ghost creation and annihilation operators, thus enabling us to characterize the physical states on a well-defined Fock space. The Hamiltonian is… Expand

We develop the complete composite theory of gravity, in which the gauge vector fields of the YangMills theory with Lorentz symmetry group are expressed in terms of the tetrad variables obtained from… Expand

Whenever an alternative theory of gravity is formulated in a background Minkowski space, the conditions characterizing admissible coordinate systems, in which the alternative theory of gravity may be… Expand
