Some Elementary Gauge Theory Concepts
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungGauge theory, which underlies modern particle physics as well as the theory of gravity, and hence all of physics as we know it, is itself based on a few fundamental concepts. This volume outlines these concepts, so often overlooked in texts which concentrate on the theory's applications.
InhaltsverzeichnisAn elucidation of the basic concepts; loop space formulation using a nonabelian Poincare lemma; monopoles and their dynamics as consequences of topology; examples of generalized gauge structures including string theory; a precis of the relevant mathematics.
