ABSTRACT We introduce the magnetic angular momentum as a consequence of the structure of the sO(3) Lie algebra defined by the Feynman brackets. The Poincare momentum and Dirac magnetic monopole appears as a direct result of this framework. Comment: 10 pages

    ABSTRACT: The derivation of the brackets among coordinates and momenta for classical constrained systems is a necessary step toward their quantization. Here we present a new approach for the determination of the classical brackets which does neither require Dirac's formalism nor the symplectic method of Faddeev and Jackiw. This approach is based on the computation of the brackets between the constants of integration of the exact solutions of the equations of motion. From them all brackets of the dynamical variables of the system can be deduced in a straightforward way.

    ABSTRACT: We consider the adiabatic evolution of the Dirac equation in order to compute its Berry curvature in momentum space. It is found that the position operator acquires an anomalous contribution due to the non-Abelian Berry gauge connection making the quantum mechanical algebra noncommutative. A generalization to any known spinning particles is possible by using the Bargmann–Wigner equation of motions. The noncommutativity of the coordinates is responsible for the topological spin transport of spinning particles similarly to the spin Hall effect in spintronic physics or the Magnus effect in optics. As an application we predict new dynamics for nonrelativistic particles in an electric field and for photons in a gravitational field.

    ABSTRACT: The dynamic of a classical system can be expressed by means of Poisson brackets. In this paper we generalize the relation between the usual non covariant Hamiltonian and the Poisson brackets to a covariant Hamiltonian and new brackets in the frame of the Minkowski space. These brackets can be related to those used by Feynman in his derivation of Maxwell's equations. The case of curved space is also considered with the introduction of Christoffel symbols, covariant derivatives, and curvature tensors.
