Parametrized Non-Linear Electrodynamics — •Rico Berner, Horst-Heino von Borzeszkowski, and Thoralf Chrobok — Institute for Theoretical Physics, Technical University Berlin, Berlin
Based on the parametrization method introduced by Kuchař we derive the canonical Hamiltonian description out of the Lagrangian formulation for non-linear electrodynamics. We consider the Legendre transformation and the constraints that arise. In this framework, we introduce an extension of Dirac's approach and give an alternative view of the quantization procedure concerning the Born-Infeld electrodynamics. Further, we present the application of the extended approach to various theories of non-linear electrodynamics.
