Seminario di Fisica Matematica

Mercoledì 2 Luglio 2014 alle ore 11:00 in Aula 2BC30 della Torre Archimede, Larry Bates (University of Calgary) terrà un seminario dal titolo "An extension of the Dirac theory of constraints".

We describe what elements of a variational problem can still be seen in the canonical formalism using the Dirac theory. The talk will be based around two examples, which illustrate the issues involved. No prior background in the Dirac theory is assumed in order to make the talk as accessible as possible to an audience with only a minimal acquaintance with the Euler-Lagrange equations.
