We will pick up the concepts of partial and complete observables introduced by Rovelli in [1] in order to construct Dirac observables in gauge systems. We will generalize these ideas to an arbitrary number of gauge degrees of freedom. Different methods to calculate such Dirac observables are developed. For background independent field theories we will show that partial and complete observables can be related to Kuchař’s Bubble Time Formalism [2]. Moreover one can define a non-trivial gauge… CONTINUE READING
