On the 50th anniversary of Yang-Mills theory, this invaluable volume looks back at the developments and achievements in elementary
particle physics that ensued from that beautiful idea. During the last five decades, Yang-Mills theory, which is undeniably
the most important cornerstone of theoretical physics, has expanded widely. It has been investigated from many perspectives,
and many new and unexpected features have been uncovered from this theory. In recent decades, apart from high energy physics,
the theory has been actively applied in other branches of physics, such as statistical physics, condensed matter physics,
nonlinear systems, etc. This makes the theory an indispensable topic for all who are involved in physics. An international
team of experts, each of whom has left his mark on the developments of this remarkable theory, contribute essays or more detailed
technical accounts to this volume. These articles highlight the new discoveries from the respective authors' perspectives.
The distinguished contributors are: S Adler, P van Baal, F A Bais, C Becchi, M Creutz, A DeRujula, B S DeWitt, F Englert,
L D Faddeev, P Hasenfratz, R Jackiw, P van Nieuwenhuizen, A Polyakov, R Stora, S Weinberg, F Wilczek, E Witten, C N Yang.
Included in each article are introductory and explanatory remarks by the editor, G 't Hooft, who is himself a major player
in the development of Yang-Mills theory

"In the 1960s, Leipzig was the center of resistance in East Germany. Harald Fritzsch, then a physics student, contemplated
escape. But before he left, he wanted to demonstrate to the government that they had gone too far when they destroyed St.
Paul's Church in May 1968. He accomplished that by unrolling a protest transparency in spectacular fashion. Despite the great
efforts of the secret police, the STASI, the government was unable to find out who was responsible for this act. Soon after,
together with a friend, Fritzsch began his journey to Bulgaria in order to escape into Turkey by traversing the Black Sea
in a folding canoe. This was a daredevil endeavor, never done before." "In this book, Harald Fritzsch - now a world-renowned
physicist - portrays in detail an authentic picture of the East German regime and the events of the late 1960s. Today, 40
years later, he critically takes stock of the events since German reunification."--Jacket

Few people studying Gauge Field Theory need to be convinced of the importance of the work of 't Hooft. This volume contains
a selection of articles and review topics covering his well-known studies on the renormalization of non-Abelian gauge theorems,
topological phenomena in gauge field theory and thoughts on the role of black holes in quantum gravity. The chapters are tied
together by thoughtful commentaries which provide a background and the illumination of hindsight - together they form a clear
and coherent picture of the physical and theoretical importance of gauge theories and the gauge p

"In this richly illustrated book, Nobel laureate Gerard 't Hooft and theoretical physicist Stefan Vandoren describe the enormous
diversity of natural phenomena that take place at different timescales. In the tradition of the bestseller Powers of Ten,
the authors zoom in and out in time, each step with a factor of ten. Starting from one second, timescales are enlarged until
processes are reached that take much longer than the age of the universe. After the largest possible eternities, the reader
is treated to the shortest and fastest phenomena known. Then the authors increase with powers of ten, until again the second
is reached at the end of the book."--Page 4 of cover

This book presents the deterministic view of quantum mechanics developed by Nobel Laureate Gerard 't Hooft. Dissatisfied with
the uncomfortable gaps in the way conventional quantum mechanics meshes with the classical world, 't Hooft has revived the
old hidden variable ideas, but now in a much more systematic way than usual. In this, quantum mechanics is viewed as a tool
rather than a theory. The book presents examples of models that are classical in essence, but can be analysed by the use of
quantum techniques, and argues that even the Standard Model, together with gravitational interactions, might be viewed as
a quantum mechanical approach to analysing a system that could be classical at its core. He shows how this approach, even
though it is based on hidden variables, can be plausibly reconciled with Bell's theorem, and how the usual objections voiced
against the idea of ‘superdeterminism' can be overcome, at least in principle. This framework elegantly explains - and automatically
cures - the problems of the wave function collapse and the measurement problem. Even the existence of an “arrow of time" can
perhaps be explained in a more elegant way than usual. As well as reviewing the author’s earlier work in the field, the book
also contains many new observations and calculations. It provides stimulating reading for all physicists working on the foundations
of quantum theory

Almost all theories of fundamental interactions are nowadays based on the gauge concept. Starting with the historical example
of quantum electrodynamics, we have been led to the successful unified gauge theory of weak and electromagnetic interactions,
and finally to a non abelian gauge theory of strong interactions with the notion of permanently confined quarks. The. early
theoretical work on gauge theories was devoted to proofs of renormalizability, investigation of short distance behaviour,
the discovery of asymptotic freedom, etc . . , aspects which were accessible to tools extrapolated from renormalised perturbation
theory. The second phase of the subject is concerned with the problem of quark confinement which necessitates a non-perturbative
understanding of gauge theories. This phase has so far been marked by the introduc tion of ideas from geometry, topology
and statistical mechanics in particular the theory of phase transitions. The 1979 Cargese Institute on "Recent Developments
on Gauge Theories" was devoted to a thorough discussion of these non-perturbative, global aspects of non-abelian gauge theories.
In the lectures and seminars reproduced in this volume the reader wilf find detailed reports on most of the important developments
of recent times on non perturbative gauge fields by some of the leading experts and innovators in this field. Aside from lectures
on gauge fields proper, there were lectures on gauge field concepts in condensed matter physics and lectures by mathematicians
on global aspects of the calculus of variations, its relation to geometry and topology, and related topics

The importance of gauge theory for elementary particle physics is by now firmly established. Recent experiments have yielded
con vincing evidence for the existence of intermediate bosons, the carriers of the electroweak gauge force, as well as for
the presence of gluons, the carriers of the strong gauge force, in hadronic inter actions. For the gauge theory of strong
interactions, however, a number of important theoretical problems remain to be definitely resolved. They include the quark
confinement problem, the quantita tive study of the hadron mass spectrum as well as the role of topo logy in quantum gauge
field theory. These problems require for their solution the development and application of non-perturbative methods in quantum
gauge field theory. These problems, and their non-pertur bative analysis, formed the central interest of the 1983 Cargese
summer institute on "Progress in Gauge Field Theory." In this sense it was a natural sequel to the 1919 Cargese summer institute
on "Recent Developments in Gauge Theories." Lattice gauge theory provides a systematic framework for the investigation of
non-perturbative quantum effects. Accordingly, a large number of lectures dealt with lattice gauge theory. Following a systematic
introduction to the subject, the renormalization group method was developed both as a rigorous tool for fundamental questions,
and in the block-spin formulation, the computations by Monte Carlo programs. A detailed analysis was presented of the problems
encountered in computer simulations. Results obtained by this method on the mass spectrum were reviewed

During the past 15 years, quantum field theory and classical statistical mechanics have merged into a single field, and the
need for nonperturbative methods for the description of critical phenomena in statistical mechanics as well as for problems
in elementary particle physics are generally acknowledged. Such methods formed the central theme of the 1987 Cargese Advanced
Study Institut. e on "Nonpert. urbat. ive Quantum Field Theory." The use of conformal symmet. ry has been of central interest
in recent years, and was a main subject at. t. he ASI. Conformal invariant quantum field theory describes statistical mechanical
systems exactly at a critical point, and can be analysed to a remarkable ext. ent. by group t. heoretical methods. Very strong
results have been obtained for 2-dimensional systems. Conformal field theory is also the basis of string theory, which offers
some hope of providing a unified t. heory of all interactions between elementary particles. Accordingly, a number of lectures
and seminars were presented on these two topics. After syst. ematic introductory lectures, conformal field theory on Riemann
surfaces, orbifolds, sigma models, and application of loop group theory and Grassmannians were discussed, and some ideas on
modular geometry were presented. Other lectures combined' traditional techniques of constructive quant. um field theory with
new methods such as the use of index-t. heorems and infinite dimensional (Kac Moody) symmetry groups. The problems encountered
in a quantum mechanical description of black holes were discussed in detail

The 1996 NATO Advanced Study Institute (ASI) followed the international tradi tion of the schools held in Cargese in 1976,
1979, 1983, 1987 and 1991. Impressive progress in quantum field theory had been made since the last school in 1991. Much of
it is connected with the interplay of quantum theory and the structure of space time, including canonical gravity, black holes,
string theory, application of noncommutative differential geometry, and quantum symmetries. In addition there had recently
been important advances in quantum field theory which exploited the electromagnetic duality in certain supersymmetric gauge
theories. The school reviewed these developments. Lectures were included to explain how the "monopole equations" of Seiberg
and Witten can be exploited. They were presented by E. Rabinovici, and supplemented by an extra 2 hours of lectures by A.
Bilal. Both the N = 1 and N = 2 supersymmetric Yang Mills theory and resulting equivalences between field theories with different
gauge group were discussed in detail. There are several roads to quantum space time and a unification of quantum theory and
gravity. There is increasing evidence that canonical gravity might be a consistent theory after all when treated in. a nonperturbative
fashion. H. Nicolai presented a series of introductory lectures. He dealt in detail with an integrable model which is obtained
by dimensional reduction in the presence of a symmetry

""It may be that a real synthesis of quantum and relativity theories requires not just technical developments but radical
conceptual renewal."--J S Bell. Beyond Peaceful Coexistence: The Emergence of Space, Time and Quantum brings together leading
academics in mathematics and physics to address going beyond the 'peaceful coexistence' of space-time descriptions (local
and continuous ones) and quantum events (discrete and non-commutative ones). Formidable challenges waiting beyond the Standard
Model require a new semantic consistency within the theories in order to build new ways of understanding, working and relating
to them. The original A. Shimony meaning of the peaceful coexistence (the collapse postulate and non-locality) appear to be
just the tip of the iceberg in relation to more serious fundamental issues across physics as a whole. Chapters in this book
present perspectives on emergent, discrete, geometrodynamic and topological approaches, as well as a new interpretative spectrum
of quantum theories after Copenhagen, discrete time theories, time-less approaches and 'super-fluid' pictures of space-time.
As well as stimulating further research among established theoretical physicists, the book can also be used in courses on
the philosophy and mathematics of theoretical physics."--Provided by publisher
