- n. Plural form of holonomy.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
He goes on to note that his favoured interpretation of gauge theories (in terms of non-separable holonomies) is one according to which the fundamental objects are ontologically secondary to structure because the objects of a theory are members of equivalence classes under symmetry transformations and no further individuation of objects is possible.
So there is a whole set of problems with equating holonomies, loop space variables etc, with the group theory of curvatures.
