# On the topology of the configuration space of lattice gauge field theories

** Abstract: **

In my presentation I will discuss the notion of reduced classical
configuration space for gauge field theory. By construction the
reduced configuration space is a quotient. It is a stratified space
with possibly non trivial topology. I will present few examples for
gauge groups SU(2) and SU(3), where the topology of the space in
question can be described in terms of a cell complex.
