Gerbes, Covariant Derivatives, P-form Lattice Gauge Theory, and the Yang-baxter Equation

Abstract

In p-form lattice gauge theory, the fluctuating variables live on p-dimensional cells and interact around (p + 1)-dimensional cells. It has been argued that the continuum version of this model should be described by (p − 1)-gerbes. However, only connections and curvatures for gerbes are understood, not covariant derivatives. Using the lattice analogy, an… (More)
