Hartle’s generalized quantum mechanics in the sum-over-histories formalism is used to describe a nonabelian gauge theory. Predictions are made for certain alternatives, with particular attention given to coarse grainings involving the constraint. In this way, the theory is compared to other quantum-mechanical descriptions of gauge theories in which the constraints are imposed by hand. The vanishing of the momentum space constraint is seen to hold, both through a simple formal argument and via a… CONTINUE READING
