The Yang-Mills fields — from the gauge theory to the mechanical model

Radu Constantinescu and Carmen Ionescu
From the journal Open Physics


The paper presents some mechanical models of gauge theories, i.e. gauge fields transposed in a space with a finite number of degree of freedom. The main focus is on how a global symmetry as the BRST one could be transferred in this context. The mechanical Yang-Mills model modified by taking the ghost type variables into account will be considered as an example of nonlinear dynamical systems.
