Effects of Topological Charge in Gauge Theories

  • R. J. Crewther
Part of the Acta Physica Austriaca book series (FEWBODY, volume 19/1978)

Abstract

These lectures concern the properties of topological charge in gauge theories and the physical effects which have been attributed to its existence.

Keywords

Gauge Group Gauge Transformation Zero Mode Ward Identity Topological Charge 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
