    In my personal nnlab a bibliography for an interesting topic, which some of my peers in Zagreb got recently interested in: Feynman proof of the Lorentz force equations (zoranskoda). It is funny – deriving gauge theories and even gravity just from commutation relations for the generators (coordinates and “covariant momenta”) without any action principle, that is without assuming Lagrange or Hamilton formalism to hold. It has nice extensions and it may be important for the philosophy of gauge theories aka connections on vector bundles. Any ideas of categorification may be interesting…

    When talking personal nnlab I wrote a long general advice page for students who may ask for my future mentorship in Zagreb of some sort. Well, if I stay in Zagreb. The things are getting rough for science here, and I am not sure of my own future.

    Very interesting. I was not familiar with this work by Feynman (or, if I was, I have long since forgotten about it). Thanks for mentioning it.
