Compactness of the moduli space of Yang-Mills connections in higher dimensions. (English) Zbl 0647.53030
In this paper the author generalizes K. K. Uhlenbeck’s [Commun. Math. Phys. 83, 31-42 (1982; Zbl 0499.58019)] compactness theorem for the moduli space of Yang-Mills connections to higher dimensions. Namely, let $$\{A_ i\}$$ be a sequence of Yang-Mills connections with uniform $$L^ 2$$-bounds on curvatures on a bundle P over a compact Riemannian manifold M of dimension n. Then there exists a subsequence of $$\{A_ i\}$$ which converges after gauge transformations outside a compact set S with finite (n-4)-dimensional Hausdorff measure.
