A New Topological Perspective on Quantization in Physics

Hooman Rahimizadeh, Stan Sholar, Michael Berg


We propose a new characterization of classical quantization in physics in terms of sheaf cohomology on the site of spacetime as a smooth 4-manifold. The perspective of sheaf cohomology is motivated by a presentation of the Aharonov-Bohm effect in terms of the integration of differential forms.
