Matrix representation of the generalized Moyal algebra
H (x, p) = {ǫ(x, p), H (x, p)} + a(x, p)H (x, p) where ǫ is a generating function of the canonical transformations while a corresponds to the infinitesimal form of (14) after the substitution A = ea .

If we neglect the quartic and the higher order terms and perform the Gaussian integral over ~a, the result is the Maxwell-like term for ~A: hAµ (p)Aν (−p)i = (N π2 /8|p|)(δµν − ˆpµ ˆpν ).
