The massive p -forms and the self-dual p -forms are analyzed from the point of view of the Hamiltonian path integral quantization. The quantization procedure is based on the construction of an equivalent first-class system using the gauge unfixing (GU) and respectively the Batalin-Fradkin (BF) methods and then quantizing the resulting first-class system.

    Massive self-dual 3-forms in 7 dimensions are analyzed from the point of view of the Hamiltonian path integral quantization. The quantization procedure relies on the quantization of a first-class system equivalent with the original theory. The first-class system is constructed in the framework...

    The problem of quantization of self-duals 3-forms is considered in the framework of the gauge unfixing approach based on path integral. Starting from the original second-class theory, self-dual 3-forms, we construct a first-class theory. With first-class theory at hand, we build the...

    We consider how more than one gauge fixing condition can be accommodated within the Feynman path integral both by extending the Faddeev-Popov procedure and the Batalin-Vilkovisky approach. The first-order Einstein-Hilbert action in 1 + 1 dimensions and the massless spin-3/2 action are considered.

    In the Becchi–Rouet–Stora–Tyutin (BRST) quantization of gauge theories, the zero locus Z[sub Q] of the BRST differential Q carries an (anti)bracket whose parity is opposite to that of the fundamental bracket. Observables of the BRST theory are in a 1:1 correspondence with...

    The Wheeler-DeWitt equation is obtained for Kasner-like cosmologies. Some solutions to this equation are presented for empty space, space filled with a cosmological constant and in the presence of a scalar field. We also briefly discuss a non-commutative extension of these results.
