The Noncommutative Geometry of the Standard Model

  • Walter D. van SuijlekomEmail author
Part of the Mathematical Physics Studies book series (MPST)


One of the major applications of noncommutative geometry to physics has been the derivation of the Standard Model of particle physics from a suitable almost-commutative manifold.
