Finite symmetry groups are ubiquitous in physics, e.g. for stabilizing particles such as the proton or dark matter, or for explaining the patterns of masses and mixings of quarks and leptons. The lore of quantum gravity says that they should be gauged and the lore of gauge symmetry says that they should be free of anomalies that can arise when they act on chiral fermions, at least if they are to be linearly realized in vacuo. The study of such anomalies was pioneered by Graham Ross in…

Anomalies of non-Abelian finite groups via cobordism

We use cobordism theory to analyse anomalies of finite non-abelian symmetries in 4 spacetime dimensions. By applying the method of ‘anomaly interplay’, which uses functoriality of cobordism and
