Maxim Grigoriev


Research interests

Scientific interests of Maxim Grigoriev involve mathematical foundations of gauge systems (constrained dynamics and symmetries,  Batalin-Vilkovisky quantization) higher-spin gauge theories and holography,  superstring sigma models and  noncommutative theories. He proposed the so-called parent formulation of general gauge theories which systematically unifies Batalin-Vilkovisky and Hamiltonian BRST approaches  into a unique formalism which has the structure of (generalized) Alexandrov-Kontsevich-Schwartz-Zaboronsky  (AKSZ) sigma-model, which is especially useful in the context of diffeomorphism-invariant theories and higher spin holography.
