F-theory with worldvolume sectioning

  title={F-theory with worldvolume sectioning},
  author={William D. Linch and Warren Siegel},
  journal={Journal of High Energy Physics},
Abstract We describe the worldvolume for the bosonic sector of the lower-dimensional F-theory that embeds 5D, N=1 M-theory and the 4D type II superstring. This theory is a complexification of the fundamental 5-brane theory that embeds the 4D, N=1 M-theory of the 3D type II string in a sense that we make explicit at the level of the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations. We find three types of section condition: in spacetime, on the worldvolume, and one tying them together. The 5-brane theory…

F-theory superspace backgrounds

F-theory is the theory proposed to incorporate superstring theory in a way such that STU dualities are manifest. A useful description uses a current superalgebra on a higher-dimensional worldvolume,

Perturbative F-theory 10-brane and M-theory 5-brane

Abstract The exceptional symmetry is realized perturbatively in F-theory which is the manifest U-duality theory. The SO(5) U-duality symmetry acts on both the 16 space-time coordinates and the 10

F-theory amplitudes

We propose 4-point S-matrices for three-dimensional F-theory. We will use the twistor formalism to facilitate constructing the amplitude. We write the amplitude in a way such that the F-symmetry



F-theory from fundamental five-branes

Abstract We describe the worldvolume for the bosonic sector of the lower-dimensional F-theory that embeds 4D, N=1 M-theory and the 3D Type II superstring. The worldvolume (5-brane) theory is that of

F-theory superspace

Abstract We consider, at the linearized level, the superspace formulation of lower-dimensional F-theory. In particular, we describe the embedding of 3D Type II super-gravity of the superstring, or

M -branes and N = 2 strings

The string field theory of N = (2,1) heterotic strings describes a set of self-dual Yang - Mills fields coupled to self-dual gravity in 2 + 2 dimensions. We show that the exact classical action for

Manifest Duality in Low-Energy Superstrings

String theories inspire a new formalism for their low-energy limits. In this approach to these field theories, spacetime duality and stringy left/right handedness are manifest. Enlarged tangent-space

The local symmetries of M-theory and their formulation in generalised geometry

A bstractIn the doubled field theory approach to string theory the T-duality group is promoted to a manifest symmetry at the expense of replacing ordinary Riemannian geometry with generalised

We extend spacetime duality to superspace, including fermions in the low-energy limits of superstrings. The tangent space is a curved, extended superspace. The geometry is based on an enlarged

The gauge structure of generalised diffeomorphisms

A bstractWe investigate the generalised diffeomorphisms in M-theory, which are gauge transformations unifying diffeomorphisms and tensor gauge transformations. After giving an En(n)-covariant

E d ( d ) × R + generalised geometry , connections and M theory

We show that generalised geometry gives a unified description of bosonic eleven-dimensional supergravity restricted to a d-dimensional manifold for all d ≤ 7. The theory is based on an extended
