BRST symmetry for a torus knot

  title={BRST symmetry for a torus knot},
  author={Vipul Kumar Pandey and Bhabani Prasad Mandal},
  journal={Europhysics Letters},
We develop BRST symmetry for the first time for a particle on the surface of a torus knot by analyzing the constraints of the system. The theory contains 2nd-class constraints and has been extended by introducing the Wess-Zumino term to convert it into a theory with first-class constraints. BFV analysis of the extended theory is performed to construct BRST/anti-BRST symmetries for the particle on a torus knot. The nilpotent BRST/anti-BRST charges which generate such symmetries are constructed…

Particle on a torus knot: symplectic analysis

: We quantize a particle confined to move on a torus knot satisfying constraint condition ( pθ + qφ ) ≈ 0, within the context of a geometrically motivated approach – the Faddeev-Jackiw formalism. We

The BRST quantization of particle motion on the hypersurface V N − 1 embedded in Euclidean space R N is carried out both in Hamiltonian and

Research Hamiltonian and Lagrangian BRST Quantization in Riemann Manifold II

We have previously developed the BRST quantization on the hypersurface V N − 1 embedded in N -dimensional Euclidean space R N in both Hamiltonian and Lagrangian formulation. We generalize the

Equivalence of two solutions of physical massive gravity

We study some aspects of linearized gravity as gauge theory, with massive deformation. Recently, it has been shown that there are two distinct solutions, which represent physical massive gravity. The



Fractional statistics and anyon superconductivity

The occurrence of fractional statistics has been discovered in more and more quantum field theory models, including some of the most geometrical and canonical ones. In a remarkable case, the


Non-relativistic quantum mechanics is formulated on the surface of a four-dimensional sphere (S3). It is shown that a point particle on S3 can automatically carry spin.
