The Gauge Group of a Principal Bundle

  • Dale Husemoller
Part of the Graduate Texts in Mathematics book series (GTM, volume 20)


The gauge group of a principal bundle is simply its automorphism group with a topology coming from the mapping space topology. The mapping space topology (called the compact open topology) will not be considered in detail but will be outlined in the first section.
