Abstract:

This thesis is concerned with the problem of "coding" the information of various zero-rest-mass fields into the complex structure of "curved twistor spaces". Chapter 2 is devoted to various preliminaries: a brief outline of twistor theory; an introduction to vector bundles and sheaf cohomology and some of their applications in twistor theory; and a discussion of potentials for electromagnetic fields.
