# Nilpotent Symmetries and Curci-Ferrari Type Restrictions in 2D Non-Abelian Gauge Theory: Superfield Approach

@article{Srinivas2016NilpotentSA, title={Nilpotent Symmetries and Curci-Ferrari Type Restrictions in 2D Non-Abelian Gauge Theory: Superfield Approach}, author={N. Srinivas and R. P. Malik}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2016} }

We derive the off-shell nilpotent symmetries of the two (1+1)-dimensional (2D) non-Abelian 1-form gauge theory by using the theoretical techniques of the geometrical superfield approach to Becchi-Rouet-Stora-Tyutin (BRST) formalism. For this purpose, we exploit the augmented version of superfield approach (AVSA) and derive theoretically useful nilpotent (anti-)BRST, (anti-)co-BRST symmetries and Curci-Ferrari (CF) type restrictions for the self-interacting 2D non-Abelian 1-form gauge theory…
