Gauge Theory and Gravity

Andrew Waldron and Derek Wise

Fall 2008

In the Fall 2008 quarter, we're giving a series of lectures on gauge theories, especially with a view toward understanding gravity as a gauge theory. Andrew is giving lectures on "constrained systems", while Derek is lecturing on "gauge theories" in the sense of principal bundles. This course is one of the activities for the VIGRE Research Focus Group on Quantum Geometry.

Here are the course notes:
