Description:
Mathematical gauge theory studies connections on principal bundles, or, more precisely, the solution spaces of certain partial differential equations for such connections. Historically, these equations have come from mathematical physics, and play an important role in the description of the electro-weak and strong nuclear forces.

Book cover: Exact Sequences in the Algebraic Theory of SurgeryExact Sequences in the Algebraic Theory of Surgery
by - Princeton University Press
One of the principal aims of surgery theory is to classify the homotopy types of manifolds using tools from algebra and topology. The algebraic approach is emphasized in this book, and it gives the reader a good overview of the subject.
