Yang Mills fields and symmetry breaking: From Lie super-algebras to non commutative geometry

  • R. Coquereaux
Part of the Mathematical Physics Studies book series (MPST, volume 13)


We describe a fonnalism using both ideas of non commutative geometry and of Lie super-algebras to describe the geometry of Yang Mills fields and symmetry breaking.
