The Special Relativistic Classical Field Theory

  • Anadijiban Das
Part of the Universitext book series (UTX)


We shall define the Lagrangian function for a relativistic classical field. Let \(\bar D \subset \mathbb{R}^4 \) be a bounded region corresponding to a region \(\bar U\) in space-time M4. Let F: \(\bar D \to \mathbb{R}^\rho \) be a twice differentiable function, i.e., \(F \in \ell ^2 (\bar D;\mathbb{R}^\rho )\) (see Figure 24).
