# Global gauge conditions in the Batalin-Vilkovisky formalism

@article{Getzler2019GlobalGC, title={Global gauge conditions in the Batalin-Vilkovisky formalism}, author={Ezra Getzler and Sean Weinz Pohorence}, journal={arXiv: Mathematical Physics}, year={2019} }

In the Batalin-Vilkovisky formalism, gauge conditions are expressed as Lagrangian submanifolds in the space of fields and antifields. We discuss a way of patching together gauge conditions over different parts of the space of fields, and apply this method to extend the light-cone gauge for the superparticle to a conic neighbourhood of the forward light-cone in momentum space.
