abstract duality: opposite category,
concrete duality: dual object, dualizable object, fully dualizable object, dualizing object
Examples
between higher geometry/higher algebra
Langlands duality, geometric Langlands duality, quantum geometric Langlands duality
In QFT and String theory
Makkai duality is a kind of syntax-semantics duality, due to Michael Makkai, relating pretoposes (categories having to do with the syntax of first-order logic) and ultracategories (which are a way of capturing the semantics of first-order logic). This leads to a proof of conceptual completeness for first-order logic.
