Abstract We address the issue of T -duality and U -duality symmetries in the toroidally compactified type IIA string. It is customary to take as a starting point the dimensionally reduced maximal supergravity theories, with certain field strengths dualised such that the classical theory exhibits a global E n(n) symmetry, where n = 11 − D in D dimensions. A discrete subgroup then becomes the conjectured U -duality group. In dimensions D ⩽ 6, these necessary dualisations include NS-NS fields… CONTINUE READING
