A gravitational action with stringy $Q$ and $R$ fluxes via deformed differential graded Poisson algebras

  title={A gravitational action with stringy \$Q\$ and \$R\$ fluxes via deformed differential graded Poisson algebras},
  author={E. Boffo and P. Schupp},
We study a deformation of a 2-graded Poisson algebra where the functions of the phase space variables are complemented by linear functions of parity odd velocities. The deformation is carried by a 2-form B-field and a bivector Π, that we consider as gauge fields of the geometric and non-geometric fluxes H , f , Q and R arising in the context of string theory compactification. The technique used to deform the Poisson brackets is widely known for the point particle interacting with a U(1) gauge… Expand


Deformed graded Poisson structures, generalized geometry and supergravity
In recent years, a close connection between supergravity, string effective actions and generalized geometry has been discovered that typically involves a doubling of geometric structures. WeExpand
Dual gravity with $R$ flux from graded Poisson algebra
We suggest a new action for a ``dual'' gravity in a stringy $R$, $Q$ flux background. The construction is based on degree-$2$ graded symplectic geometry with a homological vector field. The structureExpand
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 includingExpand
Gravity theory on Poisson manifold with $R$-flux
A novel gravity theory based on Poisson Generalized Geometry is investigated. A gravity theory on a Poisson manifold equipped with a Riemannian metric is constructed from a contravariant version ofExpand
String theory and noncommutative geometry
We extend earlier ideas about the appearance of noncommutative geometry in string theory with a nonzero B-field. We identify a limit in which the entire string dynamics is described by a minimallyExpand
A bi-invariant Einstein-Hilbert action for the non-geometric string
Abstract Inspired by recent studies on string theory with non-geometric fluxes, we develop a differential geometry calculus combining usual diffeomorphisms with what we call β-diffeomorphisms. ThisExpand
β-supergravity: a ten-dimensional theory with non-geometric fluxes, and its geometric framework
A bstractWe present a ten-dimensional theory, named β-supergravity, that contains non-geometric fluxes and could uplift some four-dimensional gauged supergravities. Building on earlier work, we studyExpand
A symmetry of the string background field equations
Abstract We investigate the effect of duality transformations on the geometries of a subclass of two-dimensional non-linear sigma-models. We identify the torsion which appears on dualizing such aExpand
Current algebras and differential geometry
We show that symmetries and gauge symmetries of a large class of 2-dimensional σ-models are described by a new type of a current algebra. The currents are labeled by pairs of a vector field and aExpand
T-duality, generalized geometry and non-geometric backgrounds
We discuss the action of O(d,d), and in particular T-duality, in the context of generalized geometry, focusing on the description of so-called non-geometric backgrounds. We derive local expressionsExpand
