"Gauge and Gravitational Anomalies''
We review the algebra of gauge field anomalies
of Wess & Zumino and some of its applications.
Anomalies associated with U(1) fields
are directly tied to Dirac's original monopole construction
and its extension to extra dimensions.
We show how gravity is incorporated by
the Bardeen-Zumino formalism.
Refreshments will be served in CP 179 at 3:30 PM
