Magnetic Charges and Strings as Building Blocks of Hadrons — Connection between Electromagnetic and Dual Strings

Conference paper
Part of the Acta Physica Austriaca book series (FEWBODY, volume 11/1973)


The dynamics of particles having both electric and magnetic charges leads to infinite multiplets which can be used to describe the structure of hadrons. Both the infinite multiplets and the magnetic charges have close mathematical and physical connections to the spectrum of the dual models, to the underlying string models and to saturation of current algebras.
