The Differential Geometry of Instantons
(University of Waterloo, 2009-08-07)
The instanton solutions to the Yang-Mills equations have a vast range of practical applications in field theories including gravitation and electro-magnetism. Solutions to Maxwell's equations, for example, are abelian gauge ...
A Subclass of Exceptional Parallel Self-similar G2 Cosmologies
(University of Waterloo, 2019-05-13)
We perform a qualitative and asymptotic analysis of a particular class of cosmological models, namely the exceptional G2 perfect fluid and vacuum models that are additionally self-similar with the fluid flow lying tangential ...
