Particles and Vector Bundles

Part of the Texts and Monographs in Physics book series (TMP)

Abstract

This chapter deals with some specific vector bundles over the spacetime that serve as models of elementary particles. We restrict our consideration to particles of matter (as opposed to particles mediating interactions) which are free, i.e., not subject to interactions. The choice of the bundles to represent them is justified in Chapter 3. Analogous models of interaction carriers and interacting particles are described in Chapters 5 and 6.
