Summary

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.
