Symmetries IV: Local symmetries in field theory

Anthony Duncan

in The Conceptual Framework of Quantum Field Theory

Published in print:
2012
Published Online:
January 2013
ISBN:
9780199573264
eISBN:
9780191743313

This chapter examines the additional rich structure introduced when a local quantum field theory displays a local gauge symmetry. It shows how such symmetries require a generalization of the ... More


Hamiltonian Mechanics with Time as a Coordinate

Oliver Davis Johns

in Analytical Mechanics for Relativity and Quantum Mechanics

Published in print:
2011
Published Online:
December 2013
ISBN:
9780191001628
eISBN:
9780191775161

chapter
Publisher:
Oxford University Press
DOI:
10.1093/acprof:oso/9780191001628.003.0014
Subject:
Physics, Atomic, Laser, and Optical Physics

This chapter uses the traditional Hamilton equations as the basis for an extended Hamiltonian theory in which time is treated as a coordinate. The traditional Hamilton equations, including the ... More


Late-Life Mortality and Fecundity Plateaus Evolve

Laurence D. Muller

in Does Aging Stop?

Published in print:
2011
Published Online:
September 2011
ISBN:
9780199754229
eISBN:

Item type:
chapter
Publisher:
Oxford University Press
DOI:
10.1093/acprof:oso/9780199754229.003.0004
Subject:
Biology, Evolutionary Biology / Genetics

In Drosophila laboratory evolution, mortality and fecundity plateaus evolve in the manner predicted by Hamiltonian theory. These ‘strong inference’ experiments provide corroboration for the ... More


Physiology of Late Life

Laurence D. Muller

in Does Aging Stop?

Published in print:
2011
Published Online:
September 2011
ISBN:
9780199754229

Subject:
Biology, Evolutionary Biology / Genetics

Hamiltonian theory suggests that the physiology of late life could be different from that of aging. Drosophila experiments comparing the physiology of aging with the physiology of late life ... More
