Exercises in Equivariant Cohomology ∗

  • Published 1996
Equivariant cohomology is a mathematical framework particularly well adapted to a kine-matical understanding of topological gauge theories of the cohomological type. It also sheds some light on gauge fixing, a necessary field theory operation connected with the non com-pactness of the gauge group. The respective roles of fields and observables are… CONTINUE READING
