Hello! I hope I posted this in the right section.

I have tried to google the definitions of what follows but I didn't get what I expected. I would like to ask you then:

What is the definition of a self-dual field and a self-dual topologically massive vector gauge field?

Thank you very much.

This is in reference to this paper: http://arxiv.org/pdf/hep-th/9705122.pdf

Probably you have found this?

They give a definition of (anti)self-dual in the corresponding chapter.

Thank you for your trial. Yes I have saw this, it gave me a slight insight about what it is but not the big picture.
