## A Characterization of Invariant Connections

27 Jan 2015  ·  Hanusch Maximilian ·

Given a principal fibre bundle with structure group $S$, and a fibre transitive Lie group $G$ of automorphisms thereon, Wang's theorem identifies the invariant connections with certain linear maps $\psi\colon \mathfrak{g}\rightarrow \mathfrak{s}$. In the present paper, we prove an extension of this theorem which applies to the general situation where $G$ acts non-transitively on the base manifold... We consider several special cases of the general theorem, including the result of Harnad, Shnider and Vinet which applies to the situation where $G$ admits only one orbit type. Along the way, we give applications to loop quantum gravity. read more
