Yang Mills model of interacting particles in the classical field theory
by Jean Claude Dutailly
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 187
The purpose is to study systems of interacting particles in the General Relativity context, by the principle of least action using purely classical concepts. The particles are described by a state tensor using a Clifford algebra for the kinematic part. The force fields, including gravitation, are described by connections on principle bundles.

This review summarizes Effective Field Theory techniques, which are the theoretical tools for exploiting the existence of hierarchies of scale in a physical problem. The general theoretical framework is described, and evaluated for a simple model.
