New gauge field models with non-Yang-Mills dynamics

Part III. Invited Papers Dedicated To Asim Orhan Barut


We propose a class of new gauge field models in 2n dimensions, with n not less than4. These systems are unrelated to Yang-Mills, in the sense that their gauge-field Higgs descendants in lower dimensions do not include the Yang-Mills dynamics.
