Symplectic structure of electromagnetic duality
Abstract
We develop an electromagnetic symplectic structure on the spacetime manifold by defining a Poisson bracket in terms of an invertible electromagnetic tensor F_{\mu\nu}. Moreover, we define electromagnetic symplectic diffeomorphisms by imposing a special condition on the electromagnetic tensor. This condition implies a special constraint on the LeviCivita tensor. Then, we express geometrically the electromagnetic duality by defing a dual local coordinates system.
