BV-BFV approach to General Relativity: Palatini-Cartan-Holst action

Thursday, 20 July, 2017

The present paper shows that the Palatini-Cartan-Holst (PCH) formulation of General Relativity in tetrad variables must be complemented with additional requirements on the fields when boundaries are taken into account, for the associated BV theory to induce a compatible BFV theory on a manifold with boundary.
