Title: Selected QG topics (2): symmetries in the general field theory framework
In the second lecture about the general field theory, we will deal the notion of symmetry. We will discuss which groups of transformations naturally appear in the geometric and algebraic sector of the theory, and study the relationship between them. Finally, we will analyze what are the implications to the structure of the notion of a field as a map from geometry to algebra, and how groups of transformations help us classify the fields into components which transform in a regular way with respect to a given group.
