Title: Particle-vortex duality from 3D bosonization

We show how particle-vortex duality in d = 2+1 dimensions arises as part of an intricate web of relationships between different field theories. The starting point is “bosonization,” a conjectured duality that uses flux attachment to transmute the statistics of relativistic particles. From this seed, we derive many old and new dualities. Finally, these include particle-vortex duality for bosons as well as the recently discovered counterpart for fermions.
