Hamiltonian formalism for free higher spin gauge fields

Speaker : Amaury Leonard (AEI Potsdam)
Abstract : We obtain the Hamiltonian formalism of massless higher spins on a flat background: the constraints are found and solved through the introduction of prepotentials, in terms of which the equations of motion take the form of self-duality conditions. These prepotentials enjoy an additional gauge invariance under linearized rescaling. A system of curvatures (Cotton tensors) associated to the corresponding conformal geometry is built in the process. Based on 1810.04457 and 1609.04461.
