A QP perspective on topology change in Poisson-Lie T-duality

  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},
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…

Romans Massive QP Manifolds
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: Topology Change from H-Flux
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
Poisson-Lie U-duality in exceptional field theory
Poisson-Lie duality provides an algebraic extension of conventional Abelian and non-Abelian target space dualities of string theory and has seen recent applications in constructing quantum group
Unified picture of non-geometric fluxes and T-duality in double field theory via graded symplectic manifolds
A bstractWe give a systematic derivation of the local expressions of the NS H-flux, geometric F- as well as non-geometric Q- and R-fluxes in terms of bivector β- and two-form B-potentials including
Generalized complex geometry and T-duality
We describe how generalized complex geometry, which interpolates between complex and symplectic geometry, is compatible with T-duality, a relation between quantum field theories discovered by
Courant Algebroids, Poisson–Lie T-Duality, and Type II Supergravities
We reexamine the notions of generalized Ricci tensor and scalar curvature on a general Courant algebroid, reformulate them using objects natural w.r.t. pull-backs and reductions, and obtain them from
Born sigma-models for para-Hermitian manifolds and generalized T-duality
We give a covariant realization of the doubled sigma-model formulation of duality-symmetric string theory within the general framework of para-Hermitian geometry. We define a notion of generalized

Para‐Hermitian Geometry, Dualities and Generalized Flux Backgrounds
We survey physical models which capture the main concepts of double field theory on para‐Hermitian manifolds. We show that the geometric theory of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian dynamical systems is an
Doubled aspects of generalised dualities and integrable deformations
A bstractThe worldsheet theories that describe Poisson-Lie T-dualisable σ-models on group manifolds as well as integrable η, λ and β-deformations provide examples of ℰ-models. Here we show how such
