Noncommutative Geometry and the Internal Space of Gauge Theories

  • Thomas Krajewski
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 363)


In this seminar, we outline how one can use noncommutative geometry to describe the internal space of gauge theories with spontaneous symmetry breaking. This can be done only for a tiny subset of Yang-Mills-Higgs theories. We give some features of this subset, focusing on mild extensions of the standard model.
