We study T-duality in the Green-Schwarz formalism to all orders in superspace coordinates. We find two analogs of Buscher rules for the supervielbein and clarify their meaning from the superstring point of view. The transformation rules for the dilaton, spin 1/2 fermions and Ramond-Ramond superfields are also derived.

Superfield T duality rules in ten-dimensions with one isometry

In this contribution we present the superfield T-duality rules relating type IIA and type IIB supergravity potentials for the case when both type IIA and type IIB superspaces have (at least) one

On type II superstrings in bosonic backgrounds: the role of fermions and T-duality

We derive the actions for type II Green-Schwarz strings up to second order in the fermions, for general bosonic backgrounds. We base our work on the so-called normal coordinate expansion. The

Superfield T-duality rules

A geometric treatment of T-duality as an operation which acts on differential forms in superspace allows us to derive the complete set of T-duality transformation rules which relate the superfield

Canonical pure spinor (fermionic) T-duality

We establish that the recently discovered fermionic T-duality can be viewed as a canonical transformation in phase space. This requires a careful treatment of constrained Hamiltonian systems.

Some aspects of abelian and nonabelian T-duality and the gauge/gravity correspondence

In this thesis we study properties of type II supergravity solutions generated by abelian and nonabelian T-duality. Also we determine, through the gauge/gravity conjecture, some aspects of the eld

T-duality in the string theory effective action with a string source

We consider the T-duality transformations of the low-energy quantum string theory effective action in the presence of classical fundamental string source and demonstrate explicitly that T-duality

Gauge-string duality for ( non ) supersymmetric deformations of N = 4 super-Yang – Mills theory

We consider a nonsupersymmetric example of the AdS/CFT duality which generalizes the supers ric exactly marginal deformation constructed in hep-th/0502086. The string theory background we u found in




New supergeometries which are tailored to simplify calculations of the one-loop quantum corrections of Green-Schwarz nonlinear σ-models are described.

Exact duality in the string effective action.

It is found that under certain conditions this duality is a symmetry of the full effective string action in the target space, free of [alpha][prime] corrections.
