Aim and scope
Quantum field theory (Q.F.T) for gauge theories has been widly successful as a framework for the study of the high-energy particle physics. In particular the Batalin-Vilkovisky formalism
is regarded as the most powerful and general way to quantize gauge theories.
Unfortunately, even if the ideas and techniques of quantum field theory have had a profound influence
on the development of modern mathematics, there is not a general and commonly accepted mathematical theory for it.
On the other hand classical (covariant) field theory is properly understood as a rigorous theory in the setting of jet-bundles.
During the last fifteen years much progress were done in the intepretation of (classical) BV formalism as a machinery involving homological algebra's methods in the context of jet-bundles.
The aim and the scope of this workshop is the understanding of these techniques and possibly the development of this topic.
