Lorentz Covariant Canonical Formalism for Free Massive, Massless and Tachyonic Particles
- 21 Downloads
We construct a consistent Lorentz-covariant canonical formalism for a free massive, massless and tachyonic particle in the framework of the absolute synchronization scheme of clocks. In the case of a massive particle our approach is canonically equivalent to the standard formulation which is not manifestly covariant. The absolute synchronization scheme seems to be the only one we can apply in the case of massless and tachyonic particles.
