Title: Null-plane invariance of Hamiltonian null-plane dynamics.

Abstract

Relativistic Hamiltonian few-body dynamics [1,2] involves two unitary representations of the Poincare group on the Hilbert space H of physical states, with and without interactions. These two representations, U({Lambda}, a) and U{sub 0}({Lambda},a), coincide for a kinematic subgroup H. The ''Hamiltonians'' are the generators not in the Lie algebra of the kinematic subgroup. The kinematic subgroup of null-plane dynamics leaves the null-plane z {center_dot} x {triple_bond} x{sup 0} + x{sub 3} = 0 invariant. Few-body Hamiltonians satisfying the required commutation relations can be constructed as functions of a mass operator and kinematic quantities. For more than two particles there are nontrivial problems in satisfying cluster separability. [3] Consistency of electro-weak interactions with strong interactions also involves significant problems: Poincare covariance of current operators requires the construction of appropriate interaction currents.
