We generalize duality invariance for the free Maxwell action in an arbitrary background geometry to include the presence of electric and magnetic charges. In particular, it follows that the actions of equally charged electric and magnetic black holes are equal. 

Duality invariance of black hole creation rates

Pair creation of electrically charged black holes and its dual process, pair creation of magnetically charged black holes, are considered. It is shown that the creation rates are equal provided the

Pair Creation of Rotating Black Holes

An exact and regular solution, describing a couple of charged and spinning black holes, is generated in an external electromagnetic field, via Ernst technique, in Einstein-Maxwell gravity. A wormhole

Dyons with potentials: Duality and black hole thermodynamics

A modified version of the double potential formalism for the electrodynamics of dyons is constructed. Besides the two vector potentials, this manifestly duality invariant formulation involves four

Duality and integrability: Electromagnetism, linearized gravity, and massless higher spin gauge fields as bi-Hamiltonian systems

In the reduced phase space of electromagnetism, the generator of duality rotations in the usual Poisson bracket is shown to generate Maxwell’s equations in a second, much simpler Poisson bracket.

Action growth of dyonic black holes and electromagnetic duality

Electromagnetic duality of Maxwell theory is a symmetry of equations but not of the action. The usual application of the “complexity = action” conjecture would thus lose this duality. It was recently

Manifest Duality in Born–Infeld Theory

Born–Infeld theory is formulated using an infinite set of gauge fields, along the lines of McClain, Wu and Yu. In this formulation electromagnetic duality is generated by a fully local functional.

Electro-Magnetic Space-Time Duality for 2+1 D Stationary Classical Solutions

We extend a space-time duality suggested by Kogan for 2+1-dimensional static classical solutions of Einstein Maxwell Chern-Simons theories to stationary rotating space-times. We also extend the

Black hole entropy from non-proper gauge degrees of freedom : II . The charged vacuum capacitor

The question which degrees of freedom are responsible for the semi-classical contribution to the partition function, obtained by evaluating the Euclidean action improved through suitable boundary

Black hole entropy from nonproper gauge degrees of freedom: The charged vacuum capacitor

The question which degrees of freedom are responsible for the classical part of the Gibbons-Hawking entropy is addressed. A physical toy model sharing the same properties from the viewpoint of the
