Wed, 2013-04-24 10:30 - 12:00 We study principal bundles for strict Lie $n$-groups over simplicial manifolds. Given a Lie group $G$, one can construct a principal $G$-bundle on a manifold $M$ by taking a cover $U$ of $M$, specifying a transition cocycle, and then quotienting $U\times G$ by the equivalence relation generated by the cocycle. We demonstrate the existence of an analogous construction for arbitrary strict Lie $n$-groups. As an application, we show how our construction leads to a simple finite dimensional model of the Lie 2-group String($n$).
