Among all models of nonlinear electrodynamics, ModMax is the only sourcefree nonlinear extension of Maxwell's theory which is invariant under both conformal and duality transformations. We consider couplings of ModMax to electric and magnetic charged sources with the aim to reveal physical effects which would distinguish ModMax from Maxwell's electrodynamics. To this end we will study whether and how ModMax nonlinearity affects properties of electromagnetic interactions of charged objects, in particular the Lorentz force, the LienardWiechert potentials, Dirac's quantization of electric and magnetic charges, Compton scattering in presence of a strong magnetic background.

Abstract
Among all models of nonlinear electrodynamics, ModMax is the only sourcefree nonlinear extension of Maxwell's theory which is invariant under both conformal and duality transformations. We consider couplings of ModMax to electric and magnetic charged sources with the aim to reveal physical effects which would distinguish ModMax from Maxwell's electrodynamics. To this end we will study whether and how ModMax nonlinearity affects properties of electromagnetic interactions of charged objects, in particular the Lorentz force, the LienardWiechert potentials, Dirac's quantization of electric and magnetic charges, Compton scattering in presence of a strong magnetic background.File  Dimensione  Formato
