Explicit construction of the classical BRST charge for nonlinear algebras

Andrei Bratchikov
From the journal Open Physics

Abstract

We give an explicit formula for the Becchi-Rouet-Stora-Tyutin (BRST) charge associated with Poisson superalgebras. To this end, we split the master equation for the BRST charge into a pair of equations such that one of themis equivalent to the original one and find a solution to this equation. The solution possesses a graphical representation in terms of diagrams.
