Abstract

Starting from the extended Lie algebras generated by the Gauss-law constraints, and using the coadjoint-orbit method, we construct bosonized actions for anomalous gauge theories in two and four space-time dimensions. We show that the anomalous gauge algebras determine the anomalous part of the actions, but not the gauge invariant terms. These are generated by exact cocycles.
