Modern quantum box concept is especially constructed as quantization of classical fields. for that reason, classical box concept and its BRST extension is the mandatory step in the direction of quantum box conception. This e-book goals to supply an entire mathematical origin of Lagrangian classical box concept and its BRST extension for the aim of quantization. in keeping with the normal geometric formula of idea of nonlinear differential operators, Lagrangian box thought is taken care of in a really basic atmosphere. Reducible degenerate Lagrangian theories of even and peculiar fields on an arbitrary gentle manifold are thought of. the second one Noether theorems generalized to those theories and formulated within the homology phrases give you the strict mathematical formula of BRST prolonged classical box theory.The so much bodily suitable box theories - gauge thought on imperative bundles, gravitation idea on traditional bundles, conception of spinor fields and topological box idea - are offered in an entire approach. This ebook is designed for theoreticians and mathematical physicists focusing on box conception. The authors have attempted all through to supply the required mathematical historical past, hence making the exposition self-contained.

Let T F ∗ → Z denote the dual of T F → Z. 32) of vector bundles over Z. It should be emphasized that leaves of a foliation need not be closed or imbedded submanifolds. , if z ∈ U , then a leaf through z also belongs to U . A pair (Z, F) where F is a foliation of Z is called a foliated manifold. 1. , Z → f (Z) is a fibred manifold. Leaves of this foliation are closed imbedded submanifolds. Such a foliation is called simple. It is a fibred manifold over f (Z). Any (regular) foliation is locally simple.
R ≡ 0. 25)). (iii) The horizontal distribution is involutive. (iv) There exists a local integral section for a connection Γ through any point y ∈ Y . 3, a flat connection Γ on a fibre bundle Y → X yields a horizontal foliation on Y , transversal to the fibration Y → X. The leaf of this foliation through a point y ∈ Y is defined locally by an integral section sy for the connection Γ through y. Conversely, let a fibre bundle Y → X admit a transversal foliation such that, for each point y ∈ Y , the leaf of this foliation through y is locally defined by a section sy of Y → X through y.
