Extensions of Groups of Gauge Transformations

  • Jouko Mickelsson
Part of the Plenum Monographs in Nonlinear Physics book series (PMNP)


In this chapter we shall discuss the structure of the infinite-dimensional Lie groups associated to the affine Kac-Moody algebras. We shall also construct the group of the current algebra of a gauge field theory in 3+1 space-time dimensions and we shall study the implications of the commutation relations for the spin-statistics relation in 3+1 dimensions.
