About the Authors
  • This is a systematic introduction to electromagnetic duality and its generalizations. The authors are the leading figures in this exciting area of mathematical physics, and their lectures have been organised not only to link with each other but also to describe the fundamental ideas, the developments and some earlier work whose significance has become apparent. This will be essential reading for all those working in mathematical physics.

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