We discuss the signature of space-time in the context of the E11-conjecture. In this setting, the space-time signature depends on the choice of basis for the “gravitational sub-algebra” A10, and Weyl transformations connect interpretations with different signatures of space-time. Also the sign of the 4-form gauge field term in the Lagrangian enters as an adjustable sign in a generalized signature. Within E11, the combination of space-time signature (1,10) with conventional sign for the 4-form… CONTINUE READING
