Non-Abelian gauge theory on q-Quantum spaces
- Author(s): Schraml, Stefan L.
- et al.
Gauge theories on q-deformed spaces are constructed using covariant derivatives. For this purpose a "vielbein" is introduced, which transforms under gauge transformations. The non-Abelian case is treated by establishing a connection to gauge theories on commutative spaces, i.e. by a Seiberg-Witten map. As an example we consider the Manin plane. Remarks are made concerning the relation between covariant coordinates and covariant derivatives.
