@inproceedings{Arvanitakis2021AQP, title={A QP perspective on topology change in Poisson-Lie T-duality}, author={Alex S. Arvanitakis and Chris D. A. Blair and Daniel C. Thompson}, year={2021} }

We describe topological T-duality and Poisson-Lie T-duality in terms of QP (differential graded symplectic) manifolds and their canonical transformations. Duality is mediated by a QPmanifold on doubled non-abelian “correspondence” space, from which we can perform mutually dual symplectic reductions, where certain canonical transformations play a vital role. In the presence of spectator coordinates, we show how the introduction of bibundle structure on correspondence space realises changes in…

We introduce QP manifolds that capture the generalised geometry of type IIA string backgrounds with Ramond–Ramond fluxes and Romans mass. Each of these is associated with a BPS brane in type IIA: a…

T-duality acts on circle bundles by exchanging the first Chern class with the fiberwise integral of the H-flux, as we motivate using E8 and also using S-duality. We present known and new examples…
