Mysterious triality

  title={Mysterious triality},
  author={Hisham Sati and Alexander A. Voronov},
Mysterious duality was discovered by Iqbal, Neitzke, and Vafa in 2001 as a convincing, yet mysterious correspondence between certain symmetry patterns in toroidal compactifications of M-theory and del Pezzo surfaces, both governed by the root system series $E_k$. It turns out that the sequence of del Pezzo surfaces is not the only sequence of objects in mathematics which gives rise to the same $E_k$ symmetry pattern. We present a sequence of topological spaces, starting with the four-sphere $S…

Analytical thinking is dominated by binary ideas. From pair-wise interactions, to algebraic operations, to compositions of processes, to network models, binary structures are deeply ingrained in the
Non-Geometric T-Duality as Higher Groupoid Bundles with Connections
We describe T-duality between general geometric and non-geometric backgrounds as higher groupoid bundles with connections. Our description extends the previous observation by Nikolaus and Waldorf
