We consider compactifications of theN = 1, d = 6, E8 theory on tori to five, four, and three dimensions and learn about some properties of this theory. As a by-product we derive the SL(2,Z) duality of the N = 2, d = 4, SU(2) theory with Nf = 4. Using this theory on a D-brane probe we shed new light on the singularities of F-theory compactifications to eight dimensions. As another application we consider compactifications of F-theory, M-theory and the IIA string on (singular) Calabi-Yau spaces… CONTINUE READING
