eb 2 00 5 Second Order Gauge Theory

Abstract

A gauge theory of second order in the derivatives of the auxiliary field is constructed following Utiyama’s program. A novel field strength G = ∂F + fAF arises besides the one of the first order treatment, F = ∂A − ∂A + fAA. The associated conserved current is obtained. It has a new feature: topological terms are determined from local invariance… (More)
