|Abstract: ||The problem of gauge symmetry in higher derivative Lagrangian systems is discussed from a Hamiltonian point of view. The number of independent gauge parameters is shown to be in general less than the number of independent primary first class constraints, thereby distinguishing it from conventional first order systems. Different models have been considered as illustrative examples.
In particular we show a direct connection between the gauge symmetry and the W-algebra for the rigid relativistic particle.|
