New to this second edition is the proof of the index theorem in terms of supersymmetric quantum mechanics. The final two chapters are devoted to the most fascinating applications of geometry and topology in contemporary physics, namely the study of anomalies in gauge field theories and the analysis of Polakov's bosonic string theory from the. Michael Betancourt does a good job of explaining that differential geometry is fundamental to really understanding QFT.

In the book, they give a detailed account of the basics of geometry and topology relevant to the Yang-Mills theory in a rigorous mathematical presentation.

The equivalence between string-theory on -space and 4-D N = 4 super-Yang–Mills conformal field theory is one of the deepest equivalences in physics, mainly due to the fact that the gauge theory lives on the worldvolume of a stack of D3-branes, which is equivalent to living on the boundary of. Throat holographic decoupling is hence essential for extracting the right bulk geometry .

In recent years topology has firmly established itself as an important part of the physicist's mathematical arsenal. It has many applications, first of all in quantum field theory, but increasingly also in other areas of physics. The main focus of this book is on the results of quantum field theory that are obtained by topological methods.

A topological quantum field theory (or topological field theory or TQFT) is a quantum field theory which focuses on topological invariants. Although TQFTs were invented by physicists, they are also of mathematical interest, being related to, among other things, knot theory and the theory of four-manifolds in algebraic topology, and to the theory of moduli spaces in algebraic geometry.
