Gauging without initial symmetry

Abstract : The gauge principle is at the heart of a good part of fundamental physics: Starting with a group G of so-called rigid symmetries of a functional defined over space–time Σ , the original functional is extended appropriately by additional Lie(G) -valued 1-form gauge fields so as to lift the symmetry to Maps(Σ,G) . Physically relevant quantities are then to be obtained as the quotient of the solutions to the Euler–Lagrange equations by these gauge symmetries.
