I have a question is the dual of the field strength ( of abelian gauge theory) in 3 dimensional space the same as the gauge field?

I have a formula for the dual field strength and am trying to bring that of gauge field!!!

Thank you

In the first case, the dual is also a 2-form, but generally not the same 2-form. In the second case, the dual is a 1-form, not a 2-form. (In an N dimensional space the dual form of the field strength is N-2-dimensional.)

Hi again

In the first case, the dual is also a 2-form, but generally not the same 2-form. In the second case, the dual is a 1-form, not a 2-form. (In an N dimensional space the dual form of the field strength is N-2-dimensional.)

no i mean in 1+2 space yes i know that the dual of a k vector is N-k. But am applying it to N= 2+1 space, i am wondering if the dual of the field strength which is a 1 form is the same as the gauge field since both are 1 form in this special 1+2 space.

Thank you again
