One of the best ways to increase the fundamental symmetries of the physical systems with singular Lagrangian is the gauging of those models with the help of symplectic formalism of constrained systems. The main idea of this approach is based on the embedding of the model in an extended phase-space. After the gauging process had done, we can obtain generators of gauge transformations of the model.
