AN ABELIAN MODEL OF GRAVITY AND CANONICAL QUANTIZATION BY MEANS OF PATH INTEGRALS

An Abelian model of gravity is introduced and its constraint structure is obtained. The main task is to show that the model with constraints can be canonically quantized by means of the canonical

Symplectic analysis of three-dimensional Abelian topological gravity

Abstract.A detailed Faddeev-Jackiw quantization of an Abelian topological gravity is performed; we show that this formalism is equivalent and more economical than Dirac's method. In particular, we

On the uniqueness of ghost-free special gravity

Special gravity refers to interacting theories of massless gravitons in Minkowski space-time which are invariant under the abelian gauge invariance $h_{ab}\rightarrow h_{ab}+\partial_{(a}χ_{b)}$

Finite states in 4 dimensional quantized gravity . A brief introduction into the path integration approach in Ashtekar variables

In this paper we demonstrate explicitly the equivalence of the path integral to the canonical approaches to quantization of gravity in Ashtekar variables coupled to matter fields quantized on the

A brief introduction into the path integration approach in Ashtekar variables

In this paper we demonstrate the formal equivalence of the canon-ical to the path integration approaches to quantization of gravity in Ashtekar variables coupled to matter fields in four dimensions.

Topological quantum field theory

A twisted version of four dimensional supersymmetric gauge theory is formulated. The model, which refines a nonrelativistic treatment by Atiyah, appears to underlie many recent developments in

Quantization of non-Abelian antisymmetric tensor field

We have given a detailed derivation of a covariant expression for the S matrix of an antisymmetric tensor field on the basis of the canonical formulation of the theory. An important technical point

We give an example of a generally covariant geometric field theory which leads to the standard Gaussian and supermomentum constraints but which lacks the super-Hamiltonian constraint. This theory is
