We consider a two-fold problem: on the one hand, the classification of a family of solution-generating techniques in (modified) supergravity and, on the other hand, the classification of a family of canonical transformations of 2-dimensional σ-models giving rise to integrable-preserving transformations. Assuming a generalised Scherk-Schwarz ansatz, in fact, the two problems admit essentially the same algebraic formulation, emerging from an underlying double Lie algebra d. After presenting our… Expand

Pin(d,d) covariance of pure spinor equations for supersymmetric vacua and Non-Abelian T-duality
In a supersymmetric compactification of Type II supergravity, preservation of N = 1 supersymmetry in four dimensions requires that the structure group of the generalized tangent bundle TM ⊕ T M ofExpand


On Non-Abelian Duality
A general study of non-abelian duality is presented. We first identify a possible obstruction to the conformal invariance of the dual theory for non-semisimple groups. We construct the exactExpand
Poisson-Lie T-duality and loop groups of Drinfeld doubles
Abstract A duality invariant first order action is constructed on the loop group of a Drinfeld double. It gives at the same time the description of both σ-models in a pair related by Poisson-LieExpand
Yang–Baxter deformation as an $\boldsymbol {O(d,d)}$ transformation
The rules for Yang–Baxter (YB) deformation for a generic Green–Schwarz string sigma model has been obtained recently. We show that the deformation can be described through the action of a coordinateExpand
η and λ deformations as E-models
Abstract We show that the so-called λ deformed σ-model as well as the η deformed one belong to a class of the E -models introduced in the context of the Poisson–Lie-T-duality. The λ and η theoriesExpand
Scale invariance of the η-deformed AdS5 × S5 superstring, T-duality and modified type II equations
Abstract We consider the ABF background underlying the η -deformed AdS 5 × S 5 sigma model. This background fails to satisfy the standard IIB supergravity equations which indicates that theExpand
Poisson–Lie T-duals of the bi-Yang–Baxter models
Abstract We prove the conjecture of Sfetsos, Siampos and Thompson that suitable analytic continuations of the Poisson–Lie T-duals of the bi-Yang–Baxter sigma models coincide with the recentlyExpand
On integrability of the Yang–Baxter σ-model
We prove that the recently introduced Yang–Baxter σ-model can be considered as an integrable deformation of the principal chiral model. We find also an explicit one-to-one map transforming everyExpand
Poisson-Lie T-duality in Double Field Theory
Abstract We present a formulation of Double Field Theory with a Drinfeld double as extended spacetime. It makes Poisson-Lie T-duality (including abelian and non-abelian T-duality as special cases)Expand
On nonabelian duality
Abstract We show that nonabelian duality is not a symmetry of a conformal field theory, but rather a symmetry between different theories. We expose a nonlocal symmetry of nonabelian dual theories. WeExpand
