We present several pieces of evidence for strong–weak coupling duality symmetry in the heterotic string theory, compactified on a six-dimensional torus. They include symmetry of the (1) low energy effective action, (2) allowed spectrum of electric and magnetic charges in the theory, (3) allowed mass spectrum of particles saturating the Bogomol'nyi bound, and (4) Yukawa couplings between massless neutral particles and massive charged particles saturating the Bogomol'nyi bound. This duality… Expand
