|Abstract:||If a gauge configuration has a non-trivial holonomy group @ in the vacuum, then the gauge symmetry is broken to the centraliser of @ in the gauge group. This approach to symmetry breaking has found important applications recently. Here we study this mechanism from a general point of view: given a compact Lie group G and a compact subgroup H, we find conditions for the existence of a group J with H = CJ (centraliser of J), study the uniqueness of J, and ask whether J can be represented as the holonomy group of some connection. © 1989 IOP Publishing Ltd.|
