A partial regularity result for a class of stationary Yang-Mills fields in high dimension. (English) Zbl 1127.35317

Summary: We prove, for arbitrary dimension of the base \(n\geq 4\), that stationary Yang-Mills fields satisfying some approximability property are regular apart from a closed subset of the base having zero \((n-4)\)-Hausdorff measure.
