Abstract
We investigate the canonical structure of the bosonic sector of the unique maximal supergravity theory in five dimensions that is manifestly invariant under the global action of E$_{6(6)}(\mathbb{R})$. Starting from the Lagrangian formulation of the theory we construct the Hamiltonian formulation and the full set of canonical constraints. We determine all gauge transformations and compute the algebra formed by the canonical constraints under the Poisson bracket. We deduce the number of physical degrees of freedom and construct the extended Hamiltonian, describing the most general time evolution of the theory, where the full gauge freedom is manifest.
