On Dirac’s covariant quantization of non-linear electrodynamics — •Rico Berner, Horst-Heino von Borzeszkowski, and Thoralf Chrobok — Technische Universität Berlin, Berlin, Germany
This talk’s aim is to give an alternative view on the quantization procedure of Dirac’s paper (Proc. R. Soc. Lond. A 1960 257, 23–43) concerning the Born-Infeld electrodynamics. An extension of Dirac’s approach is introduced for the determination of the constraints of non-linear electrodynamics. Furthermore, the application of the extended approach to various theories is presented and compared to the results of Dirac, especially with regard to the theory of Born and Infeld.
