Infinitesimal gauge symmetries of closed forms

Abstract / Introduction Related Papers Cited by
  • Motivated by the relationship between symplectic fibrations and classical Yang-Mills theories, we study the closedness of a $n$-form ($n$=2,3) defined on the total space of a fibration as a simple model for an abstract field theory. We introduce $2$-plectic fibrations and interpret geometrically the corresponding equations for coupling in terms of higher analogues of connections.
