Non-trivial bundles and Algebraic Classical Field Theory

Romeo Brunetti, Andrea Moro
October 27, 2022
Inspired by the recent algebraic approach to classical field theory, we propose a more general setting based on the manifold of smooth sections of a non-trivial fiber bundle. Central is the notion of observables over such sections, i.e. appropriate smooth functions on them. The kinematic will be further specified by means of the Peierls brackets, which in turn are defined via the causal propagators of linearized field equations. We shall compare the formalism we use with the more traditional ones.
