An algorithmic approach towards the formulation of non-relativistic diffeomorphism invariance has been developed which involves both matter and gauge fields. A step by step procedure has been provided which can accommodate all types of (abelian) gauge interaction. The algorithm is applied to the problem of a two dimensional electron moving under an external field and also under the Chern-Simons dynamics.

On nonrelativistic diffeomorphism invariance

We study certain aspects of the recently proposed notion of nonrelativistic diffeomorphism invariance. In particular, we consider specific examples of invariant actions, extended gauge symmetry as

The dynamical role of the Chern-Simons interaction is demonstrated: the interaction does not merely change statistics but also provides the forces that bind the classical solitons.

Invariant theoretical interpretation of interaction

Some systems of fields have been considered which are invariant under a certain group of transformations depending on $n$ parameters. A general rule is obtained for introducing a new field in a

In Cartan's description, classical particles freely falling in a Newtonian gravitational field follow geodesics of a curved space-time. We cast this geodesic motion into generalized Hamiltonian form

We show how the Newton–Cartan formulation of Newtonian gravity can be obtained from gauging the Bargmann algebra, i.e. the centrally extended Galilean algebra. In this gauging procedure several
