E$_{6(6)}$ Exceptional Field Theory: Review and Embedding of Type IIB

  title={E\$\_\{6(6)\}\$ Exceptional Field Theory: Review and Embedding of Type IIB},
  author={Arnaud Baguet and Olaf Hohm and Henning Samtleben},
We review E6p6q exceptional field theory with a particular emphasis on the embedding of type IIB supergravity, which is obtained by picking the GLp5qSLp2q invariant solution of the section constraint. We work out the precise decomposition of the E6p6q covariant fields on the one hand and the Kaluza-Klein-like decomposition of type IIB supergravity on the other. Matching the symmetries, this allows us to establish the precise dictionary between both sets of fields. Finally, we establish on-shell… 

Canonical analysis of E6(6)(R) invariant five dimensional (super-)gravity

We investigate the canonical structure of the bosonic sector of the unique maximal supergravity theory in five dimensions that is manifestly invariant under the global action of

The canonical formulation of E6(6) exceptional field theory

Abstract We investigate the canonical formulation of the (bosonic) E6(6) exceptional field theory. The explicit non-integral (not manifestly gauge invariant) topological term of E6(6) exceptional

An action for F-theory: SL ( 2 ) R + exceptional field theory

We construct the 12-dimensional exceptional field theory (EFT) associated to the group SL ( 2 ) × R + . Demanding the closure of the algebra of local symmetries leads to a constraint, known as the

Exceptional Field Theory and Supergravity

In this thesis, recent developments in Double Field Theory (DFT) and Exceptional Field Theory (EFT) are presented. They are reformulation of supergravity in which duality symmetries are made manifest

Generalized IIB supergravity from exceptional field theory

A bstractThe background underlying the η-deformed AdS5 × S5 sigma-model is known to satisfy a generalization of the IIB supergravity equations. Their solutions are related by T-duality to solutions

N = 2 supersymmetric S-folds

Multi-parametric families of AdS4 vacua with various amounts of supersymmetry and residual gauge symmetry are found in the [SO(1, 1) × SO(6)] n R12 maximal supergravity that arises from the reduction

Polyvector deformations in eleven-dimensional supergravity

We consider 3- and 6-vector deformations of 11-dimensional supergravity backgrounds of the form $M_5\times M_6$ admitting at least 3 Killing vectors. Using flux formulation of the E${}_{6(6)}$

Toward exotic 6D supergravities

We investigate exotic supergravity theories in 6D with maximal (4,0) and (3,1) supersymmetry, which were conjectured by C. Hull to exist and to describe strong coupling limits of ${\cal N}=8$

Global properties of the conformal manifold for S-fold backgrounds

Abstract We study a one-parameter family of $$ \mathcal{N} $$ N = 2 anti-de Sitter vacua with U(1)2 symmetry of gauged four-dimensional maximal supergravity, with dyonic gauge group [SO(6) × SO(1,

S-folds and (non-)supersymmetric Janus solutions

Abstract The S-fold description of Janus-type solutions of type IIB supergravity is investigated. This is done by first studying a U(1) × U (1) invariant sector of the four­ dimensional



Exceptional field theory. II. E$_{7(7)}$

We introduce the exceptional field theory for the group E 7 ( 7 ) , based on a ( 4 + 56 ) -dimensional spacetime subject to a covariant section condition. The “internal” generalized diffeomorphisms

Fermions and supersymmetry in E6(6) exceptional field theory

A bstractWe construct the supersymmetric completion of E6(6)-covariant exceptional field theory. The theory is based on a (5 + 27)-dimensional generalized space-time subject to a covariant section

Double field theory of type II strings

We use double field theory to give a unified description of the low energy limits of type IIA and type IIB superstrings. The Ramond-Ramond potentials fit into spinor representations of the duality

Exceptional form of D=11 supergravity.

This Letter shows that D=11 supergravity can be extended to be fully covariant under the exceptional groups E(n(n)), n=6, 7, 8, and argues that this covariant form likewise comprises type IIB supergravity.

IIB supergravity and the E6(6) covariant vector-tensor hierarchy

A bstractIIB supergravity is reformulated with a manifest local USp(8) invariance that makes the embedding of five-dimensional maximal supergravities transparent. In this formulation the

Generalized E(7(7)) coset dynamics and D=11 supergravity

The hidden on-shell E7(7) symmetry of maximal supergravity is usually discussed in a truncation from D = 11 to four dimensions. In this article, we reverse the logic and start from a theory with
