Relative Cauchy evolution for spin 1 fields

Autoren: Marco Benini (2011)

In this thesis the generally covariant locality principle for bosonic free fields has been thoroughly analyzed devoting particular attention to the case of spin 1 fields on curved spacetimes (Proca and Maxwell fields). This has been obtained in two steps: In the first place the preliminary study of the corresponding field equations led to the construction of a symplectic space of solutions describing the classical theories of the considered fields. Secondly the locally covariant quantum theory of the field under consideration has been obtained through the assignment of the Weyl algebra associated to the symplectic space describing the classical theory. The last part of the thesis has been devoted to the proof of the relative Cauchy evolution for both the Proca field and the Maxwell field.
