A Hamiltonian field theory in the radiating regime by Piotr T. Chrusciel, Jacek Jezierski, Jerzy Kijowski

By Piotr T. Chrusciel, Jacek Jezierski, Jerzy Kijowski

The aim of this monograph is to teach that, within the radiation regime, there exists a Hamiltonian description of the dynamics of a massless scalar box, in addition to of the dynamics of the gravitational box. The authors build this type of framework extending the former paintings of Kijowski and Tulczyjew. they begin by way of reviewing a few straightforward proof referring to Hamiltonian dynamical structures after which describe the geometric Hamiltonian framework, sufficient for either the standard asymptotically flat-at-spatial-infinity regime and for the radiation regime. The textual content then offers a close description of the applying of the hot formalism to the case of the massless scalar box. eventually, the formalism is utilized to the case of Einstein gravity. The Hamiltonian position of the Trautman--Bondi mass is exhibited. A Hamiltonian definition of angular momentum at null infinity is derived and analysed.
