Self-duality significantly reduces the mathematical problems of a thought however it is usually a inspiration of substantial actual importance. the recent category of self-dual Chern-Simons theories mentioned intimately during this ebook come up within the context of anyonic quantum box idea and feature functions to versions reminiscent of the quantum corridor impact, anyonic superconductivity, and Aharonov-Bohm scattering. There also are attention-grabbing connections with the idea of integrable types. the writer provides the abelian and non-abelian types for relativistic and non-relativistic realizations of the self-dual Chern-Simons theories and finishes with a few purposes in quantum physics. The e-book is written for complex scholars and researchers in mathematical, particle, and condensed subject physics.
