Idea

In a BV-complex the dual of an element under the antibracket is called its antifield.

(There is no relation to antiparticle.)

Example

In the standard example of the BV-complex of multivector fields over a smooth manifold with volume form, the antifields of the functions on the manifolds are the vector fields.
