Dirac charge quantization and generalized differential cohomology_
Surveys in Differential Geometry 7 (2002) 129-194
This discusses how differential cohomology – specifically ordinary differential cohomology and differential K-theory – is the correct formalism for describing gauge fields and higher gauge fields in physics and string theory (such as higher U(1)-gauge fields like the electromagnetic field, the Kalb-Ramond field and the supergravity C-field, and also the RR-field) and the quantum anomaly of their action functionals.
