This monograph contains a study of the global Cauchy problem for the Yang-Mills equations on $(6+1)$ and higher dimensional Minkowski space, when the initial data sets are small in the critical gauge covariant Sobolev space $\dot {H}_A^{(n-4)/{2}}$. Regularity is obtained through a certain ``microlocal geometric renormalization'' of the equations which is implemented via a family of approximate null Crönstrom gauge transformations. The argument is then reduced to controlling some degenerate elliptic equations in high index and non-isotropic $L^p$ spaces, and also proving some bilinear estimates in specially constructed square-function spaces.
