  • It is shown that Newton-Cartan theory of gravitation can best be formulated on a five-dimensional extended space-time carrying a Lorentz metric together with a null parallel vector field. The corresponding geometry associated with the Bargmann group (nontrivially extended Galilei group) viewed as a subgroup of the affine de Sitter group AO(4,1) is thoroughly investigated. This new global formalism allows one to recast classical particle dynamics and the Schroedinger equation into a purely covariant form. The Newton-Cartan field equations are readily derived from Einstein's Lagrangian on the space-time extension.
  • A global chiral-invariant lattice fermionic action which solves the species-doubling problem of free Dirac fermions on a lattice for (even) dimensions of space-time less than 8 is systematically studied in perturbation theory in two space-time dimensions when a gauge interaction is present. The decoupling of the replica fermions requires one to give up gauge symmetry for a finite lattice spacing but the quantum continuum limit is gauge invariant and reproduces the results of the continuum Schwinger model with one flavor.
  • An alternative approach to the first-order canonical formulation of gravitation is developed. The vierbein e/sup mua/ and the spin connection mua/b are treated as independent but coequal field variables. There is no partial integration of the action prior to proceeding with canonical formulation in order to rearrange the noncyclic canonical variables. The spin connection remains noncyclic, and this seems to reduce the level of calculational complexity usually encountered in the canonical formulation of gravitation theory. As a result the approach is well suited for application to extended theories, such as R+R/sup 2/ theories and extended theories of supergravity. Themore » method is applied to the Einstein-Cartan-Sciama-Kibble (ECSK) theory of gravity. The Hamiltonian is obtained directly from the action following Dirac's procedure, and the consistency analysis is performed. The generators of general coordinate transformations and local Lorentz transformations, which act on both the vierbein and spin connection, arise naturally from the Lagrangian itself.« less
  • Since the non-Abelian version of a recently formulated gauge theory in two spatial dimensions gives rise to a nonlinear constraint upon the fields in the radiation-gauge approach, one is motivated to attempt a description in terms of the axial gauge. This is accomplished in the Abelian version of the model, with results similar to those encountered in the radiation gauge. The non-Abelian case is then formally solved in the same gauge, it being subsequently shown, however, that the theory is not covariant. It is argued on the basis of perturbation theory that such noncovariance is a real effect which ismore » not readily circumvented by modification of the field transformation properties.« less
  • We examine the possibility of fermion mass generation in (2+1)-dimensional gauge theory from the current algebra point of view. In our approach the critical behavior is governed by the fluctuations of pions which are the Goldstone bosons for chiral symmetry breaking. Our analysis supports the existence of an upper critical [ital N][sub [ital F]] and exhibits the explicit form of the gap equation as well as the form of the critical exponent for the inverse correlation length of the order parameter.
