Any of various theories based upon a gauge symmetry. Current fundamental theories, such as the standard model of particle physics, are gauge theories.

However, the premises of this argument conflict with the gauge theories of particle physics, and so this version of the argument is no more successful than its predecessors.

The presentation is organized into three parts that describe the most important non-perturbative techniques of two-dimensional field theory, two-dimensional gauge theories with emphasis on applying the previously discussed non-perturbative techniques, and non-perturbative aspects of gauge dynamics in four dimensions.
(The lessons of the hole argument in general relativity do not generalize straightforwardly to arbitrary gauge theories.) Worlds that differ merely haecceitistically are related to one another by a permutation of individuals.
According to the predictions of unified gauge theories, supersymmetry, supergravity, and string theory, there would exist a number of light and massless particles [1].
I begin in Section 2 by sketching the formalism and interpretative problems of gauge theories in general.
Aims: Characterizing M-theory compactifications on $G_2$ manifolds, and using these to obtain phenomenologically interesting 4-dimensional gauge theories. Novelty of research methodology: Utilizing new constructions of $G_2$ holonomy manifolds obtained recently in the mathematics literature.
The topics include three-dimensional supersymmetric gauge theories and Hilbert series, quantized Coulomb branches of Jordan quiver gauge theories and cyclotomic rational Cherednik algebras, a journey from the Hitchen section of the oper moduli, pure SU(2) gauge theory partition function and generalized Bessel kernal, contracting the Weierstrass locus to a point, and spectral theory and mirror symmetry.
It is well-known that the three out of four fundamental interactions of nature can be well described by the gauge theories and associated local gauge symmetries.
