Global gauge in a non-Abelian theory

  title={Global gauge in a non-Abelian theory},
  author={M. A. Solov'ev},
A global gauge is topologically forbidden in a non--Abelian theory only for sufficiently smooth fields. The corresponding boundary is established by the Sobolev criterion. Below this boundary, the customary Coulomb conditions are not gauge conditions, even locally.
