**Description**:

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), which is the group of all principal bundle automorphisms of P which cover the identity on the base space M. It is the arena for the Yang-Mills-Higgs equations which allows a satisfactory unified description of electromagnetic and weak interactions, which was developed by Glashow, Salam, and Weinberg.
