Gauge thought is now well-known as probably the most progressive discoveries in physics because the improvement of quantum mechanics. This primer explains how and why gauge thought 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 information of gauge idea obtainable to either scientists and scholars with just a heritage in quantum mechanics. Emphasis is put on the physics instead of the formalism.

2 The scale factor S(x) in Weyl’s gauge theory is illustrated by the change in length of metre stick from x to x + dx. For the special case of a constant vector, we see that the norm has changed by an amount The derivative ∂μS is the new mathematical “connection” associated with the gauge change. Note that the connection ∂μS resembles the connection obtained from the simple example of curvilinear coordinates in (II - 4). Weyl took the bold step of identifying the gauge connection ∂μS with the electromagnetic potential Aμ.
The essential role of the connection is evident in both gauge theory and relativity. Is there an analogue of the falling elevator or non-inertial coordinate frame in gauge theory? The answer is yes, but the local frame is located in an unfamiliar abstract space associated with the gauge symmetry group. To see how the gauge group defines an internal space, let us examine the examples of the U(l) phase group and the SU(2) isotopic spin group. For the U(l) group, the internal space consists of all possible values of the phase of the wavefunction.
