Simple BRS Gauge-Fixing

It is pointed out that the BRS gauge-fixing·procedure has wide applicability beyond what it is as the usual gauge-fixing method. The examples we discuss are the equivalence theorem, generalized field transformations and a natural derivation of the gaugeon formalism. We also propose a direct way of BRS gauge-fixing for open gauge theories. *) In the quantum-mechanical case, the notion of' operator-ordering should be properly taken into account. 6 )
