Gauge theories in the twentieth century

Author: John C Taylor
Publisher: London : Imperial College Press, ©2001.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
By the end of the 1970s, it was clear that all the known forces of nature (including, in a sense, gravity) were examples of gauge theories, characterized by invariance under symmetry transformations chosen independently at each position and each time. These ideas culminated with the finding of the W and Z gauge bosons (and perhaps also the Higgs boson). This important book brings together the key papers in the  Read more...

Publisher Synopsis

"J C Taylor recently edited a collection of original articles on gauge theory, starting with a few pages from Maxwell's 'Treatise'. The collection is well chosen, and is introduced by an instructive Read more...
