I will describe how to recover a Hermitian connection form the source-to-solution map of a cubic non-linear wave equation inMinkowski space;  the equation is naturally motivated by the Yang-Mills-Higgs equations. The recovery is reduced to a geometric problem of independent interest and not considered before: recovering a connection from its broken non-abelian X-ray transform along light rays.
