The construction and applications of generalized Proca theories and beyond

by Brage Gording (Max Planck Institute for Physics)

Theories of vector fields are central to theoretical physics, and due to the recent spike in interest of Generalized Proca theories we formalize the process used in deriving their actions. After reviewing the construction techniques used in previous literature, I will present the novel technique developed by us and the final form of our extended action. I will elaborate on the consistency and exhaustivity of our approach. The talk finishes with a review and discussion on applications of our new theory.
