The Geometry of Symmetry Breaking in Gauge Theories
This together with Sections 3 and 6 of the joint contribution with A. Trautman (this volume, pp. 433 to be referred to as Mayer-Trautman) constitutes a summary of the first two lectures. Much of the material is available elsewhere , so only results and some open questions are discussed. The subject matter of the second two lectures is treated in the following contribution (pp. 491).
