A Newton Institute Euroconference


7 - 18 April 1997

This meeting comprises an advanced school that presents an account of electromagnetic duality and its generalisations. The courses will include introductory lectures on supersymmetric gauge theories, supergravity theories, solitons and string duality. They will also cover more advanced topics including monopole moduli spaces, Seiberg-Witten theory, D-branes and M-theory. The school is directed towards advanced graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and researchers.
