I was wondering if anyone had an explicit form of the hamilton-jacobi equations for GR.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I had a little attempt myself using the 10 components of the metric as the 'co-ordinates', R*sqrt(det(g)) as the Langrangian density, but the maths got a bit messy when trying to compute their canonical conjugates.
