Szenthe, J. (ed.) et al., Differential geometry and its applications. Proceedings of a colloquium, held in Eger, Hungary, August 20-25, 1989, organized by the János Bolyai Mathematical Society. Amsterdam: North- Holland Publishing Company. Colloq. Math. Soc. János Bolyai. 56, 101-126 (1992).
The author gives a generalization of the classical gauge theory concerning with physical fields and Lagrangians which depend on some other coordinates besides the space-time coordinates. This is equivalent to consider physical fields defined on the total space of a vector bundle on the coordinate’s manifold. The tensor calculus is induced by a horizontal distribution on the vector bundle. The author studies the global and local gauge invariance of a Lagrangian which enables him to construct strength fields and Lagrangians for gauge fields and further to propose a full Lagrangian for his gauge theory. The motion equations and conservation laws are derived.
