Interaction of Gravity with Yang-Mills and Higgs Fields

  • Claus Gerhardt
Part of the Fundamental Theories of Physics book series (FTPH, volume 194)


The quantization of gravity interacting with Yang-Mills and Higgs fields poses no additional greater challenges—at least in principle. The number of variables will be increased, the combined Hamiltonian is the sum of several individual Hamiltonians, and, since gravity is involved, we have the Hamilton constraint as a side condition.
