Clebsch-Lagrange variational principle and geometric constraint analysis of relativistic field theoriesDec 11 2018Inspired by the Clebsch optimal control problem, we introduce a new variational principle that is suitable for capturing the geometry of relativistic field theories with constraints related to a gauge symmetry.
