Double Field Theory on Para-Hermitian Manifolds

Nell'ambito dei seminari teorici di Gruppo IV,
giovedi 18 Luglio 2019, alle ore 14:30 in aula 0Ma03
Il Prof. Richard SZABO  (Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh)
terrà un seminario dal titolo:
"Double Field Theory on Para-Hermitian Manifolds"
We briefly review the arguments that T-duality leads to doubled geometry and non-geometry in string theory, and how these notions are partially captured by generalized geometry and double field theory. We then describe how the latter two descriptions can be unified into a global and rigorous formulation of doubled target spaces as para-Hermitian manifolds. We will work through the main ideas and definitions of para-Hermitian geometry, together with many examples, and how they reduce to generalized geometry and double field theory on flat space as special instances.
