A reading project designed to establish the basics of gauge theory and its applications to theoretical physics.
"Gauge Fields, Knots and Gravity" by John C. Baez and Javier P. Muniain.
"Riemannian Geometry: Definitions, Pictures, and Results" by Adam Marsh.
"Gauge Theories and Fiber Bundles: Definitions, Pictures, and Results" by Adam Marsh.
This project involves a weekly/biweekly meeting in discord during which we review assigned material for that time period and discuss our thoughts on what we learned recently. The solved problems from the sources will also be cross-checked during this time. We also plan to have talks in the future in relation to interesting topics.
There are no talks planned currently.
