Massive Type IIA Theory on K 3 1

  title={Massive Type IIA Theory on K 3 1},
  author={Michael Haack and Jan Louis and Harvendra Singh},
In this paper we study K3 compactification of ten-dimensional massive type IIA theory with all possible Ramond-Ramond background fluxes turned on. The resulting sixdimensional theory is a new massive (gauged) supergravity with an action that is manifestly invariant under an O(4, 20)/O(4)× O(20) duality symmetry. We discover that this six-dimensional theory interpolates between vacua of ten-dimensional massive IIA supergravity and vacua of massless IIA supergravity with appropriate background… CONTINUE READING
