Combining the corrected variations of either volumes on classical physics of Thirring's direction in mathematical physics, this therapy of classical dynamical platforms employs research on manifolds to supply the mathematical environment for discussions of Hamiltonian platforms. difficulties mentioned intimately contain nonrelativistic movement of debris and structures, relativistic movement in electromagnetic and gravitational fields, and the constitution of black holes. The remedy of classical fields makes use of differential geometry to check either Maxwell's and Einstein's equations with new fabric further on guage conception.

As an exact 3-form, it does not contribute to integrals over submanifolds without boundaries, but it can affect the conserved observables locally. This difficulty is not encountered in classical mechanics, which is formally a one-dimensional field theory, and where G would be in E0, and hence = 0.
