Gauge theory is now recognized as one of the most revolutionary discoveries in physics since the development of quantum mechanics. This primer explains how and why gauge theory has dramatically changed our view of the fundamental forces of nature. The text is designed for the non-specialist. A new, intuitive approach is used to make the ideas of gauge theory accessible to both scientists and students with only a background in quantum mechanics. Emphasis is placed on the physics rather than the formalism.

Review quote

"This is a first-rate entry to the subject ... It is a deal deeper than the wordy analogies and parables that must suffice for the usual popular accounts." Scientific American, USA
