Fibre bundles, now an integral part of differential geometry, are also of great importance in modern physics--such as in gauge theory. This book, a succinct introduction to the subject by renown mathematician Norman Steenrod, was the first to present the subject systematically. It begins with a general introduction to bundles, including such topics as differentiable manifolds . This book is devoted to a rigorous mathematical treatment of the flat Minkowski spacetime of special relativity. It pays particular attention to the Lorentz group and the causal structure of the theory, but also treats the electromagnetic field tensor, spinors, and .

Book Download PDF Edition. Space, Time and Spacetime. Book Title:Space, Time and Spacetime. In this book, Lawrence Sklar demonstrates the interdependence of science and philosophy by examining a number of crucial problems on the nature of space and timeproblems that require for their resolution the resources of philosophy and of physics. It has proven quite useful for building simple models of stellar collapse, radiation generation and cosmological evolution [1]. In all of these applications, the topology of the spacetime manifolds X and of the gauge field bundles 9 have been essentially trivial [2].Cited by: 6.

Dodson,Kluwer Academic Publishers edition, in English - 2nd, rev. enl. : Spacetime topology is the topological structure of spacetime, a topic studied primarily in general physical theory models gravitation as the curvature of a four dimensional Lorentzian manifold (a spacetime) and the concepts of topology thus become important in analysing local as well as global aspects of spacetime.

In this section we will list concrete representations for the various quantities we have defined in the two most common vector spaces in physics, corresponding to space and spacetime.

We will choose bases that highlight the isomorphism \({C\left(3,0\right)\cong C_{0}\left(3,1\right)}\) and use the Pauli matrices \({\sigma_{i}}\). The discussion serves as prelude to yet another text: Dodson's Categories, Bundles and Spacetime Topology (). Dodson writes: "the right way to view it all is through the theory of categories, and increasingly the language of this theory is appearing in the literature of Physics." (Robert Geroch, Mathematical Physics, is yet another source).Cited by: Summary; Fiber bundles.

On the experiments and topology question, there is some work on the subject by Glenn Starkman et al. In their work, they search for structures in the CMB that would indicate some particular topology for the universe. There is a very nice lecture given in PI on the subject as well as other issues that have to do with CMB.

To give you a spoiler. On point i.): JohhnyMo1's comment touches the essential point, though the result he quoted holds assuming that the manifold is Hausdorff. I emphasize this because the definition of paracompactness in the literature is not uniform - sometimes it is assumed that a paracompact topological space is Hausdorff, sometimes not (M.
