Space-time symmetries in gauge theories

  • P. Forgács
  • N. S. Manton


A general definition of symmetries of gauge fields is proposed and a method developed for constructing symmetric fields for an arbitrary gauge group. Scalar fields occur naturally in the formalism and the pure gauge theory reduces to a Higgs model in lower dimensions.
