Dimensional reductions of exceptional supergravities
  OKC/Nordita High-Energy Physics Theory seminar

Monday 17 February 2014
from 13:30 to 15:00
at 122:026
Speaker : Edvard Musaev (Leibniz University, Hannover)
Abstract : The recently appeared approach of Double Field Theory (or extended geometry) allowed to rewrite low energy effective actions for string and M-theory in a duality covariant way. The price paid was the extension of space coordinates that now transform in a irrep of the corresponding duality group. In this talk we will cover the problem of dimensional reductions in this formalism and show that under Scherk-Schwarz compactification it naturally reproduces the structure of gauged supergravities.
