Presymplectic structures and intrinsic Lagrangians for massive fields

  title={Presymplectic structures and intrinsic Lagrangians for massive fields},
  author={M. Grigoriev and Vyacheslav S. Gritzaenko},
We study the construction of the intrinsic action for PDEs equipped with the compatible presymplectic structures. In particular, we explicitly demonstrate that the intrinsic action for the standard Einstein-Hilbert gravity is the familiar first-order Palatini action. We then study the example of massive spin-2 field, where the natural presymplectic structure is not complete in the sense that the associated intrinsic action does not reproduce all the equations of motion. We explicitly relate… Expand


Presymplectic structures and intrinsic Lagrangians
It is well-known that a Lagrangian induces a compatible presymplectic form on the equation manifold (stationary surface, understood as a submanifold of the respective jet-space). Given an equationExpand
Frame-like Lagrangians and presymplectic AKSZ-type sigma models
We study supergeometric structures underlying frame-like Lagrangians. We show that for the theory in n space–time dimensions both the frame-like Lagrangian and its gauge symmetries are encoded in theExpand
On presymplectic structures for massless higher-spin fields
A natural presymplectic structure for non-Lagrangian equations of motion governing the dynamics of free higher-spin fields in four-dimensional anti-de Sitter space is proposed. This presymplecticExpand
Multisymplectic structures and the variational bicomplex
Abstract Multisymplecticity and the variational bicomplex are two subjects which have developed independently. Our main observation is that re-analysis of multisymplectic systems from the view of theExpand
Parent formulations, frame-like Lagrangians, and generalized auxiliary fields
A bstractWe elaborate on the recently proposed Lagrangian parent formulation. In particular, we identify a natural choice of the allowed field configurations ensuring the equivalence of the parentExpand
Momentum maps and classical relativistic fields. Part 1: Covariant Field Theory
This is the first paper of a five part work in which we study the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian structure of classical field theories with constraints. Our goal is to explore some of the connectionsExpand
Covariant Hamiltonian Field Theories on Manifolds with Boundary: Yang-Mills Theories
The multisymplectic formalism of field theories developed by many mathematicians over the last fifty years is extended in this work to deal with manifolds that have boundaries. In particular, weExpand
Massless Fields with Integer Spin
The Fierz-Pauli Lagrangian for massive particles with arbitrary integral spin s, first obtained by Hagen and Singh, is examined in the limit of vanishing mass. Unexpectedly, a considerableExpand
The Geometry of the Master Equation and Topological Quantum Field Theory
In Batalin–Vilkovisky formalism, a classical mechanical system is specified by means of a solution to the classical master equation. Geometrically, such a solution can be considered as a QP-manifold,Expand
Gauge PDE and AKSZ‐type Sigma Models
A gauge PDE is a natural notion which arises by abstracting what physicists call a local gauge field theory defined in terms of BV-BRST differential (not necessarily Lagrangian). We studyExpand
