Magnetic monopoles and projective geometry

Colloque par Nigel Hitchin

Solutions to the gauge-theoretic Bogomolny equations in Euclidean space have been much studied, but their hyperbolic analogues present a number of unanswered questions. One aspect translates into the study of rational normal curves in projective space, and we shall show how a natural symmetry of the equations corresponds to a duality theorem in projective geometry.
