In BV-BRST formalism, for gauge fixing Yang-Mills theory (to Lorenz gauge or similar) a contractible chain complex of auxiliary field bundles is introduced for two Lie algebra-valued fields, one in degree zero, called the Nakanishi-Lautrup field, usually denoted “$B$” and one in degree -1, called the antighost field, usually denoted $\overline{C}$. See at quantization of Yang-Mills theory.
Beware that there are also the antifields of the ghost fields, which technically are hence “anti-ghostfields” as opposed to the Nakanishi-Lautrup “antighost-fields”. Whoever is responsible for this bad terminology should be blamed.
Named after Benny Lautrup and some Nakanishi who is sometimes misspelled as “Takanishi”.
