Self-dual gravity as a two dimensional theory and conservation laws

Abstract

Starting from the Ashtekar Hamiltonian variables for general relativity, the self-dual Einstein equations (SDE) may be rewritten as evolution equations for three divergence free vector fields given on a three dimensional surface with a fixed volume element. From this general form of the SDE, it is shown how they may be interpreted as the field equations for… (More)
