The Geometry of CP2 and its Relationship to Standard Model

Matti Pitkänen


This appendix contains basic facts about CP2 as a symmetric space and Kähler manifold. The coding of the standard model symmetries to the geometry of CP2, the physical interpretation of the induced spinor connection in terms of electro-weak gauge potentials, and basic facts about induced gauge fields are discussed.
