We define a very general class of CHL-models associated with any string theory S (bosonic or supersymmetric) compactified on an internal CFT C×Td. We take the orbifold by a pair (g,δ), where g is a (possibly non-geometric) symmetry of C and δ is a translation along Tn. We analyze the T-dualities of these models and show that in general they contain Atkin–Lehner type symmetries. This generalizes our previous work on N=4 CHL-models based on heterotic string theory on T6 or type II on K3×T2, as… 

Exact half-BPS black hole entropies in CHL models from Rademacher series

A bstractThe microscopic spectrum of half-BPS excitations in toroidally compactified heterotic string theory has been computed exactly through the use of results from analytic number theory.

BPS algebras, genus zero and the heterotic Monster

In this note, we expand on some technical issues raised in (Paquette et al 2016 Commun. Number Theory Phys. 10 433–526) by the authors, as well as providing a friendly introduction to and summary of

Unifying the 6D $\mathcal{N}=(1,1)$ String Landscape

We propose an organizing principle for string theory moduli spaces in six dimensions with N = (1 , 1), based on a rank reduction map, into which all known constructions fit. In the case of cyclic

State counting on fibered CY 3-folds and the non-Abelian weak gravity conjecture

Abstract We extend the dictionary between the BPS spectrum of Heterotic strings and the one of F-/M-theory compactifications on K3 fibered Calabi-Yau 3-folds to cases with higher rank non-Abelian

Exact effective interactions and 1/4-BPS dyons in heterotic CHL orbifolds

Motivated by precision counting of BPS black holes, we analyze six-derivative couplings in the low energy effective action of three-dimensional string vacua with 16 supercharges. Based on

We study some special features of $F_{24}$, the holomorphic $c=12$ superconformal field theory (SCFT) given by 24 chiral free fermions. We construct eight different Lie superalgebras of "physical"

Lost chapters in CHL black holes: untwisted quarter-BPS dyons in the ℤ2 model

Motivated by recent advances in Donaldson-Thomas theory, four-dimensional $\mathcal{N}=4$ string-string duality is examined in a reduced rank theory on a less studied BPS sector. For this we identify

It is shown that the supersymmetry-preserving automorphisms of any non-linear σ-model on K3 generate a subgroup of the Conway group Co1. This is the stringy generalisation of the classical theorem,

Four-derivative couplings and BPS dyons in heterotic CHL orbifolds

Three-dimensional string models with half-maximal supersymmetry are believed to be invariant under a large U-duality group which unifies the S and T dualities in four dimensions. We propose an exact,

We study the second quantized version of the twisted twining genera of generalized Mathieu moonshine, and verify that they give rise to Siegel modular forms with infinite product representations.

Following Sen, we study the counting of (‘twisted’) BPS states that contribute to twisted helicity trace indices in four-dimensional CHL models with $ \mathcal{N} = 4 $ supersymmetry. The generating
