Springer Science+Business Media, 2015. — 205 pp. — ISBN: 978-94-017-9749-8 (Print) 978-94-017-9750-4 (Online).This book provides an advanced introduction to extended theories of quantum field theory and algebraic topology, including Hamiltonian quantization associated with some geometrical constraints, symplectic embedding and Hamilton-Jacobi quantization and Becci-Rouet-Stora-Tyutin (BRST) symmetry, as well as de Rham cohomology. It offers a critical overview of the research in this area and unifies the existing literature, employing a consistent notation. Although the results presented apply in principle to all alternative quantization schemes, special emphasis is placed on the BRST quantization for constrained physical systems and its corresponding de Rham cohomology group structure. These were studied by theoretical physicists from the early 1960s and appeared in attempts to quantize rigorously some physical theories such as solitons and other models subject to geometrical constraints. In particular, phenomenological soliton theories such as Skyrmion and chiral bag models have seen a revival following experimental data from the SAMPLE and HAPPEX Collaborations and these are discussed. The book describes how these model predictions were shown to include rigorous treatments of geometrical constraints because these constraints affect the predictions themselves. The application of the BRST symmetry to the de Rham cohomology contributes to a deep understanding of Hilbert space of constrained physical theories. Aimed at graduate-level students in quantum field theory, the book will also serve as a useful reference for those working in the field. An extensive bibliography guides the reader towards the source literature on particular topics.Clearly describes the Hamiltonian quantization for constrained physical systems Bridges the gap between the development and application of advanced Dirac quantization associated with BRST symmetries A valuable source of information for researchers of various branches in quantum field theories Makes connections among Hamiltonian quantization, BRST symmetry, hadron phenomenology and de Rham cohomology Emphases both topological and phenomenological aspects of the subjectIntroduction Hamiltonian Quantization with Constraints BRST Symmetry in Constrained Systems Symplectic Embedding and Hamilton-Jacobi Quantization Hamiltonian Quantization and BRST Symmetry of Soliton Models Hamiltonian Quantization and BRST Symmetry of Skyrmion Models Hamiltonian Structure of Other Models Phenomenological Soliton De Rham Cohomology in Constrained Physical System
