An Elementary Primer for Gauge Theory by K Moriyasu

By K Moriyasu

Gauge conception is now well-known as essentially the most innovative discoveries in physics because the improvement of quantum mechanics. This primer explains how and why gauge thought has dramatically replaced our view of the basic forces of nature. The textual content is designed for the non-specialist. a brand new, intuitive procedure is used to make the guidelines of gauge conception available to either scientists and scholars with just a historical past in quantum mechanics. Emphasis is put on the physics instead of the formalism.Contents:
