Title: Hamilton-Jacobi field theory

Abstract:
The Hamilton-Jacobi formalism for Lagrangian mechanical systems (in the Hamiltonian picture) can be extended to higher derivative Lagrangian field theory. I will show that Hamilton-Jacobi field theory gives rise to a secondary (i.e. functional) Hamilton-Jacobi theory on the covariant phase space, i.e., the space of solutions of Euler-Lagrange field equations.
