Abstract We propose that the ten-dimensional E 8 × E 8 heterotic string is related to an eleven-dimensional theory on the orbifold R 10 × S 1 / Z 2 in the same way that the Type IIA string in ten dimensions is related to R 10 × S 1 . This in particular determines the strong coupling behavior of the ten-dimensional E 8 × E 8 theory. It also leads to a plausible scenario whereby duality between SO (32) heterotic and Type I superstrings follows from the classical symmetries of the eleven… Expand
