added pointer to today’s

- Nima Arkani-Hamed, Qu Cao, Jin Dong, Carolina Figueiredo, Song He:
*Scalar-Scaffolded Gluons and the Combinatorial Origins of Yang-Mills Theory*[arXiv:2401.00041]

Yes, we should certainly eventually have a dedicated page for D=2 YM and not have it redirect to D=2 QCD.

]]>Changed dead link as question was moved from Theoretical Physics Stackexchange to Physics Stackexchange.

Edit: I was thinking to create an own page for D=2 Yang-Mills theory (which currently is a redirect to D=2 QCD), because the special case allows for the Yang-Mills measure (see Two-dimensional Yang-Mills theory on Wikipedia), or would it be better to integrate that on D=2 QCD. In the same breath, I’ve thought about creating D=4 Yang-Mills theory with a detailed explanation of the (anti) self-dual Yang-Mills equations? Or does that also already exist somewhere else or should better be integrated on another page?

]]>incidentally, this is about the reference Donaldson 2005. I am uploading the pdf now.

Also added pointer to:

- Tai Tsun Wu, Chen Ning Yang,
*Concept of nonintegrable phase factors and global formulation of gauge fields*, Phys. Rev. D**12**(1975) 3845 [doi:10.1103/PhysRevD.12.3845]

(where the bundle-theoretic understanding of YM theory originates)

and brought the list of “reviews” into chronoogical order

]]>Re #9 perhaps it’s better if you upload the file directly to the nLab given that there’s no doi link.

]]>Replaced broken link http://www2.imperial.ac.uk/~skdona/YMILLS.PDF by new link https://www.ma.imperial.ac.uk/~skdona/YMILLS.PDF. Also added missing comma.

]]>some more references on canonical YM

]]>added a References-subsection “Phase space and canomical quantization” (here)

]]>and I have copied it over to Donaldson’s “Selected writings” here

Let’s all do that with references. It’s just one extra copy-and-paste, but gives a mighty useful cross-linking.

]]>Changed fragile ScienceDirect link to a doi link

]]>Thanks!!

]]>His website says:

Survey “Mathematical uses of gauge theory” written approx 2004, published in the Encyclopaedia of Mathematical Physics, Ed. Francois, Naber, Tsou

I found that the year is 2006 and the title there is slightly different:

Gauge Theory: Mathematical Applications

I also included a link to the Science Direct page for the article.

]]>added these two pointers:

Karen Uhlenbeck, notes by Laura Fredrickson,

*Equations of Gauge Theory*, lecture at Temple University, 2012 (pdf)Simon Donaldson,

*Mathematical uses of gauge theory*(pdf)

(if anyone has the date or other data for the second one, let’s add it)
