Lie and Leibniz Algebras of Lower-Degree Conservation Laws

  title={Lie and Leibniz Algebras of Lower-Degree Conservation Laws},
  author={B. M. Elfimov and A. Sharapov},
A relationship between the asymptotic and lower-degree conservation laws in (non-) linear gauge theories is considered. We show that the true algebraic structure underlying asymptotic charges is that of Leibniz rather than Lie. The Leibniz product is defined through the derived bracket construction for the natural Poisson brackets and the BRST differential. Only in particular, though not rare, cases that the Poisson brackets of lower-degree conservation laws vanish modulo central charges, the… Expand

The unfree gauge symmetry implies that gauge variation of the action functional vanishes provided for the gauge parameters are restricted by the differential equations. The unfree gauge symmetry isExpand

We give a complete classification of dynamical invariants in $3d$ and $4d$ Higher Spin Gravity models, with some comments on arbitrary $d$. These include holographic correlation functions,Expand
Leibniz Gauge Theories and Infinity Structures
‘infinity-enhanced Leibniz algebras’ are defined that guarantee the existence of consistent tensor hierarchies to arbitrary level and can be used to define topological field theories for which all curvatures vanish. Expand

The BV formalism is proposed for the theories where the gauge symmetry parameters are unfree, being constrained by differential equations.

It is shown that the one-loop effective action of unimodular gravity is the same as that of ordinary gravity, restricted to unimodular metrics. The only difference is in the treatment of the globalExpand

Using the concept of variational tricomplex endowed with a presymplectic struc- ture, we formulate the general notion of symmetry. We show that each generalized symmetry of a gauge system gives riseExpand

Some general theorems are established on the local BRST cohomology for not necessarily Lagrangian gauge theories. Particular attention is given to the BRST groups with direct physical interpretation.Expand

We show that there is a sequence of operations on the positively graded part of a differential graded algebra making it into an L-infinity algebra. The formulas for the higher brackets involveExpand
