Duality and the Vacuum

Abstract

We examine the issue of duality both in electrodynamics and in Kalb–Ramond— scalar axion systems. InD spacetime dimensions the dual abelian theories of p−1and D− p− 1-form potentials have vacua classified by the dimensions of the cohomology spaces Hp−1( (D−1)M) orHD−p−1( (D−1)M) respectively. The vacua are characterized by topological charges which are… (More)
