Normal Forms and Gauge Symmetries of Local Dynamics

Abstract

A systematic procedure is proposed for deriving all the gauge symmetries of the general , not necessarily variational, equations of motion. For the variational equations, this procedure reduces to the Dirac-Bergmann algorithm for the constrained Hamiltonian systems with certain extension: it remains applicable beyond the scope of Dirac's conjecture. Even… (More)
