Quantum Theory in Vector Bundles
The purpose of this talk is to describe a framework capable of accommodating quantum gauge theory (QGT), based on recent insights on the cohomological interpretation of ghosts, BRS-transformations, anomalies, and Schwinger terms. The ultimate hope is that this approach will open a window towards a trial marriage of quantum field theory and gravity.
