Structure in 6 D and 4 D N = 1 supergravity theories from F-theory

  title={Structure in 6 D and 4 D N = 1 supergravity theories from F-theory},
  author={Thomas W. Grimm and Washington Taylor},
We explore some aspects of 4D supergravity theories and F-theory vacua that are parallel to structures in the space of 6D theories. The spectrum and topological terms in 4D supergravity theories correspond to topological data of F-theory geometry, just as in six dimensions. In particular, topological axion-curvature squared couplings appear in 4D theories; these couplings are characterized by vectors in the dual to the lattice of axion shift symmetries associated with string charges. These… CONTINUE READING
