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), 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.

The author is concerned with the geometry of incidence of points and lines, over an arbitrary field, and unencumbered by metrics or continuity (or even betweenness). The treatment of these themes blends the descriptive with the axiomatic.

We provide a survey on recent results on noncompact simply connected harmonic manifolds, and we also prove many new results, both for general noncompact harmonic manifolds and for noncompact harmonic manifolds with purely exponential volume growth.

A comprehensive textbook on all basic structures from the theory of jets. It begins with an introduction to differential geometry. After reduction each problem to a finite order setting, the remaining discussion is based on properties of jet spaces.
