About the Authors
  • This is the first systematic introduction to electromagnetic duality and its generalizations. The authors, leading figures in this exciting new area of mathematical physics, describe the fundamental ideas, latest developments, and some earlier work whose significance has only recently become apparent. This volume will be essential reading for all those working in mathematical physics.

    • A systematic introduction to the subject
    • Written by the leading authorities
    • Coherently edited

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The book provides a valuable compendium at a level which should make it useful to graduate students starting research in this area...As usual with CUP [Cambridge University Press] the book is well produced and should certainly find a place in the libraries of any places where modern theoretical physics is pursued." Contemporary Physics
