In this report we try to understand why one might do Lattice Gauge Theories and what are it’s applications. We start with simple free theories with no interaction and try to see what information we can extract from the Lagrangian. It is fairly straightforward solving for solution for free theories, as they are linear doing a fourier transform simply diagonalizes the linear operator. We can compute objects like 2-point correlation function which can be used to extract the mass parameter of the theory. In this report we have tried to develop the formal mathematical framework of Abelian-Quantum Link Models.
