A polysymplectic structure is a vector-valued symplectic form, that is, a closed nondegenerate $2$-form with values in a vector space. We first outline the polysymplectic Hamiltonian formalism with coefficients in a vector space $V$, then apply this framework to show that the moduli space $\mathcal{M}(P)$ of flat connections on a principal bundle $P$ over a compact manifold $M$ is a polysymplectic reduction of the space $\mathcal{A}(P)$ of all connections on $P$ by the action of the gauge group… Expand

A global version of Günther’s polysymplectic formalism using vertical projections
I construct a global version of the local polysymplectic approach to covariant Hamiltonian field theory pioneered by C. Gunther. Beginning with the geometric framework of the theory, I specialize toExpand
