I am currently studying loop quantum gravity, and therefore GR in Ashtekar variables (A,E). I see the vector constraint E^a_iF^i_{ab}=0 is said to generate spatial diffeomorphisms (where F is the Yang-Mills field strength in terms of A), but how can I show this? How do spatial diffeomorphisms act on these variables?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
