Abstract

In spite of being a principle of classical field theory, gauge invariance of electrodynamics revealed its deep significance and found its far reaching interpretation only in relation to quantum mechanics of electrons and the Schrödinger equation. In this chapter we study the generalization of the concept of a locally invariant gauge theory to non-Abelian gauge groups constructed by following the model of Maxwell theory.
