Solutions to Exercises in Gauge Fields, Knots and Gravity

On my blog I wrote a short review of this book, an introduction to these topics and the mathematics behind them. The nickel version is that you should put down what you’re doing and purchase this book immediately.

At some point I started doing a majority of the exercises in the book, even typing them up in LaTeX. Eventually I got a tablet computer and started writing them up in Xournal. I ran out of steam somewhere around Chern-Simons theory, but I hope to continue again at some point.

Here for your enjoyment and possible edification are my solutions to nearly all of the exercises in Part I, many of them in Part II, and none in Part III. They are offered with no guarantee as to their rigor, elegance, veracity, or even truthiness. If you nevertheless find them useful, please let me know!
