BRST quantization of a scalar particle in a curved background

  • Huang Baofa


The BRST formalism is employed to quantize a scalar particle and interactions with an external scalar field Φ(xμ) and vector gauge fieldAμ(xμ) in the background of an arbitrary gravitational field. The second-quantized actions are obtained.
