An Elementary Primer For Gauge Theory by K Moriyasu

By K Moriyasu

Gauge thought is now famous as the most progressive discoveries in physics because the improvement of quantum mechanics. This primer explains how and why gauge idea has dramatically replaced our view of the elemental forces of nature. The textual content is designed for the non-specialist. a brand new, intuitive procedure is used to make the guidelines of gauge concept obtainable to either scientists and scholars with just a historical past in quantum mechanics. Emphasis is put on the physics instead of the formalism.

Example text

In this chapter, we present a brief historical introduction to the discovery and evolution of gauge theory. The early history of gauge theory can be divided naturally into old and new periods where the dividing line occurs in the 1950’s. In the old period, we will return to Weyl’s original gauge theory to gain insight into several key questions. The most important question is what motivated Weyl to propose the idea of gauge invariance as a physical symmetry? How did he manage to express it in a mathematical form that has remained almost the same today although the physical interpretation has altered radically?

The required rule, as Weyl proposed orginally, is supplied by a connection. A new isotopic-spin potential field was therefore postulated by Yang and Mills in analogy with the electromagnetic potential. However, the greater complexity of the SU(2) isotopic-spin group as compared to the U(l) phase group means that the Yang-Mills potential will be quite different from the electromagnetic field. In electromagnetism, the potential provides a connection between the phase values of the wavefunction at different positions.

When the size of the solenoid is much larger than the de Broglie wavelength of the incident electrons, the calculation shows that the scattering amplitude is essentially dominated by the simple classical trajectories as expected. An ingenious experimental test of the Aharonov-Bohm effect was performed by Chambers19 and his results confirmed the prediction of a phase shift. When the field strength within the solenoid was varied, the interference fringes shifted as expected even though there was no magnetic field in the regions where the electron beams passed.
