Issues of duality in abelian gauge theory and in linearized gravity

J.A. Nieto, E.A. León, J.A. Nieto, E.A. León


We start by describing two of the main proposals for duality in abelian
gauge theories, namely $F$(ield strength)-duality approach and the $S$%
-duality formalism. We then discuss how $F$-duality and $S$-duality can be
applied to the case of linearized gravity. By emphasizing the similarities
and differences between these two types of dualities we explore the
possibility of combining them in just one duality formalism.
