We show that only by performing generalized dimensional reductions all possible brane configurations are taken into account and one gets the complete lowerdimensional theory. We apply this idea to the reduction of type IIB supergravity in an SL(2, R)-covariant way and establish T duality for the type II superstring effective action in the context of generalized dimensional reduction giving the corresponding generalized Buscher’s T duality rules. The full (generalized) dimensional reduction… CONTINUE READING
