In geometry, the notion of a connection makes precise the idea of transporting data along a curve or family of curves in a parallel and consistent manner. Characteristic of field theories, the dynamics of the field strength are summarized by a suitable lagrangian density and substitution into the eulerlagrange equation for fields obtains the equation of motion for the field. The delight they take in an idea very often appears to be in direct proportion to what everyone else in the world finds offputting about it.
