Homotopy classes appendix in Weinberg's QFT book, Part I

  1. Nov 4, 2006 #1

    I'm trying to teach myself QFT, and I'm stuck with one formula in Part
    I of Weinberg's trilogy.

    I think I managed to understand how one gets Formula 2.B.7 in the
    appendix of Chapter 2, thanks to the information provided by Weinberg,
    but don't get 2.B.10, page 97. Could anyone one give me a hint on how
    to get it? FWIW, I'm using the paperback edition.

    Since this is not key issue, but mostly a technical mathematical point,
    I wouldn't want to get bogged down too long by this, but this is
    getting irritating :-)

    i am also trying to do the same as you do. but I got stucked on the formula (2.B.7). It seems that you have the answer, could you please provide me with that one. I am not sure what is really done to achieve this result in (2.B.7).
