General necessary conditions for the derivation of the secondary constraints of a first-order relativistic wave equation

  • C. G. Koutroulos


A first-order relativistic wave equation of the Gel'fand-Yaglom form is considered in the presence of an external electromagnetic field, and general conditions are derived that are necessary for the derivation of its secondary constraints, the general form of which is given. Examples demonstrating the validity of these conditions are also given.
