Abstract [en]

We derive the gauge-free Hamiltonian structure of an extended kinetic theory, for which the intrinsic spin of the particles is taken into account. Such a semi-classical theory can be of interest for describing, e.g., strongly magnetized plasma systems. We find that it is possible to construct a generalized noncanonical Poisson bracket on the extended phase space, and discuss the implications of our findings, including stability of monotonic equilibria.
