We consider the compactification of the E8×E8 heterotic string on a K3 surface with “the spin connection embedded in the gauge group” and the dual picture in the type IIA string (or F-theory) on a Calabi–Yau threefold X. It turns out that the same X arises also as dual to a heterotic compactification on 24 point-like instantons. X is necessarily singular… CONTINUE READING
