In this paper we consider the classification problem of extensions of Yang-Mills-type (YMT) theories. For us, a YMT theory differs from the classical Yang-Mills theories by allowing an arbitrary pairing on the curvature. The space of YMT theories with a prescribed gauge group G and instanton sector P is classified, an upper bound to its rank is given and it is compared with the space of Yang-Mills theories. We present extensions of YMT theories as a simple and unified approach to many different… Expand

Gauge Theory for Fiber Bundles
Gauge theory usually investigates the space of principal connections on a principal fiber bundle (P, p, M, G) and its orbit space under the action of the gauge group (called the moduli space), whichExpand
