Fiber bundles are the appropriate mathematical tool to describe, for example, the physics around a magnetic monopole or also instanton effects. (This is described very nicely in chapter 1 of Topology, Geometry and Gauge fields - Part 1 Foundations by G. Naber). It also shows that gauge theory, and thus the theory of strong, weak and We propose a distinction between the physical and the mathematical parts of gauge field theories. The main problem we face is to uphold a strong and meaningful criterion of what is physical. We like to call it "Field's dilemma",

The aim of this school was to bring together students and researchers in the rapidly developing crossroads of gauge theory and low–dimensional topology.

In this book, the author explains the basics of gauge theory and fiber bundles through a toy financial model.

Volume III concentrates on the classical aspects of gauge theory, describing the four fundamental forces by the curvature of appropriate fiber bundles. This must be supplemented by the crucial, but elusive quantization procedure. The book is arranged in four sections, devoted to realizing the universal principle force equals curvature: This continues: next one may consider “2-branes”, i.e. membranes, and these will couple to a 3-form gauge instance, the membrane which gives the name to M-theory (the M2-brane) couples to a 3-form field called the supergravity C-field.. But there is an important further aspect to higher gauge fields which makes this simple picture of higher degree differential forms drastically +gauge+field.

This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm :// interaction among gauge fields, which gives it a certain similarity to Einstein’s theory of gravity (Utiyama []).At about the same time, the mathematical theory of fiber bundles had reached the advanced stage described in Steenrod’s book (Steenrod [])but was generally unknown to the physics :// Browsing the Wikipedia entry on gauge theory gives me the same heuristic arguments I've read hundreds of times, together with some mathematical formalism that's totally impenetrable.

Does anyone know of an introductory book that will explain gauge symmetries, the gauge group and their applications to a grad school student. A pedagogical but concise overview of fiber bundles and their connections is provided, in the context of gauge theories in physics.

The emphasis is on defining and visualizing concepts and relationships between them, as well as listing common confusions, alternative notations and jargon, and relevant facts and theorems. Special attention is given to detailed figures and geometric viewpoints. You can find the definition of a fiber bundle and some examples on pp of Hatcher's online book Algebraic Topology.

You might also consult "Fiber Bundles," chapter 4 of Lecture Notes in Algebraic Topology, by Davis-Kirk. A fast introduction to connections and curvature can be found :// When people talk about the gauge theory and fiber bundles, mostly what is talked about is simply the group and the connection that is put on the principal bundle.

But the principal bundle has a delicate definition and structure and why I need to mention the principal bundle at all from the physics point of view is not obvious to ://A global gauge transformation (AKA gauge transformation of the first kind) is a gauge transformation that is the same at every point.

If the gauge group is non-abelian (i.e. most groups considered beyond \({U(1)}\)), the matter field is called a Yang-Mills field (AKA YM field).
