ON QUASI-LOCAL HAMILTONIANS IN GENERAL RELATIVITY



MICHAEL T. ANDERSON



Abstract.We analyse the definition of quasi-local energy in GR based on a*
* Hamiltonian analysis
of the Einstein-Hilbert action initiated by Brown-York. The role of the c*
*onstraint equations, in
particular the Hamiltonian constraint on the timelike boundary, neglected*
* in previous studies, is
emphasized here. We argue that a consistent definition of quasi-local ene*
*rgy in GR requires, at a
