The antifield-BRST approach to (gauge) field theories: an overview

Marc Henneaux (ULB)

Sep 23. 2020, 14:00 -- 14:40

An overview of the major features of the antifield-BRST method will be given, emphasing the connections with classical deformations of the action, conservation laws, global symmetries, counterterms and anomalies.  Examples will be discussed, including p-form gauge theories.
