Idea

A special kind of gauge fixing condition on a connection on a bundle.

Definition

Let X= n×X = \mathbb{R}^n \times \mathbb{R} a product manifold and let t:Xt : X \to \mathbb{R} be the projection on the last factor.

For AA a connection on a bundle on XX, a temporal gauge is a gauge in which

A t=0. A_{\partial_t} = 0 \,.
