XXXV Workshop on Geometric Methods in Physics 26.06-2.07.2016

Jerzy Kijowski

General Relativity Theory and its canonical structure

Symplectic structures arising naturally in the calculus of variations will be thoroughly discussed. Different variational principles for General Relativity will be presented (metric, metric-affine, purely affine) and the relation between them deeply analyzed. Finally, Hamiltonian formulation of the field evolution will be derived.
