The α′2 correction from double field theory

It is known that the order α′ correction to the tree-level effective action for the bosonic and heterotic string can be described in the framework of Double Field Theory (DFT). Here we determine the

Perturbative quantum gravity in double field theory

A bstractWe study perturbative general relativity with a two-form and a dilaton using the double field theory formulation which features explicit index factorisation at the Lagrangian level. Explicit

T-duality and α′-corrections

A bstractWe construct an O(d, d) invariant universal formulation of the first-order α′-corrections of the string effective actions involving the dilaton, metric and two-form fields. Two free

Higher-derivative heterotic Double Field Theory and classical double copy

The generalized Kerr-Schild ansatz (GKSA) is a powerful tool for constructing exact solutions in Double Field Theory (DFT). In this paper we focus in the heterotic formulation of DFT, considering up

String theory at order α′2 and the generalized Bergshoeff-de Roo identification

It has been shown by Marques and Nunez that the first α′-correction to the bosonic and heterotic string can be captured in the O(D, D) covariant formalism of Double Field Theory via a certain

Non-geometric Five-branes in Heterotic Supergravity

We study non-geometric five-branes in heterotic supergravity where the first order α′-corrections are present. By performing the α′-corrected T-duality transformations of the heterotic NS5-brane

Generalized dualities and higher derivatives

Generalized dualities had an intriguing incursion into Double Field Theory (DFT) in terms of local O(d, d) transformations. We review this idea and use the higher derivative formulation of DFT to
