Gravitational instantons with conformally coupled scalar fields

We present novel regular Euclidean solutions to General Relativity in presence of Maxwell and conformally coupled scalar fields. In particular, we consider metrics of the Eguchi-Hanson and Taub-NUT

Charged Taub-NUT solution in Lovelock gravity with generalized Wheeler polynomials

Wheeler's approach to finding exact solutions in Lovelock gravity has been predominantly applied to static spacetimes. This has led to a Birkhoff's theorem for arbitrary base manifolds in dimensions

Hairy Taub-NUT/bolt-AdS solutions in Horndeski theory

We present different Taub-NUT/Bolt-anti de Sitter (AdS) solutions in a shift-symmetric sector of Horndeski theory of gravity possessing nonminimal kinetic coupling of scalar fields to the Einstein



Topology and Flux of T-Dual Manifolds with Circle Actions

We present an explicit formula for the topology and H-flux of the T-dual of a general type II, compactification, significantly generalizing earlier results. Our results apply to T-dualities with

T-Duality: Topology Change from H-Flux

T-duality acts on circle bundles by exchanging the first Chern class with the fiberwise integral of the H-flux, as we motivate using E8 and also using S-duality. We present known and new examples

Topology and H-flux of T-dual manifolds.

A general formula for the topology and H-flux of the T-dual of a type II compactification is presented, finding that the manifolds on each side of the duality are circle bundles whose curvatures are given by the integral of theDual H- flux over the dual circle.

Generalized complex geometry and T-duality

We describe how generalized complex geometry, which interpolates between complex and symplectic geometry, is compatible with T-duality, a relation between quantum field theories discovered by

D-branes, T-duality, and Index Theory

We show that the transformation of D-branes under T-duality on four-torus is represented by Nahm transform of instantons. The argument for this allows us to generalize Nahm transform to the case of

Topological T-duality and Kaluza–Klein monopoles

We study topological T-duality for spaces with a semi-free $S^1-$action with isolated fixed points. Physically, these correspond to spacetimes containing Kaluza-Klein monopoles. We demonstrate that

A symmetry of the string background field equations

M theory, orientifolds and G - flux

We study the properties of M and F theory compactifications to three and four dimensions with background fluxes. We provide a simple construction of supersymmetric vacua, including some with
