On S DUALITY OF TOROIDALLY COMPACTIFIED TYPE IIB STRING EFFECTIVE ACTION
It has been shown recently that the toroidally compactified type IIB string effective action possesses an SL(2, R) invariance as a consequence of the corresponding symmetry in ten dimensions when the…
1 Duality Symmetries of Supergravity and Superstring Theories
These lectures begin by reviewing the evidence for S duality of the toroidally compactified heterotic string in 4d that was obtained in the period 1992–94. Next they review recently discovered…
T duality, and the K theoretic partition function of type IIA superstring theory
Dualities as symmetries of the Supermembrane Theory
In this note I review the role played by dualities in the Supermembrane Theory compactified on a torus. Supermembrane theory realize S, T, so U-duality, as exact symmetries of the theory. There are…
Black holes in string theory with duality twists
We consider 5D supersymmetric black holes in string theory compactifications that partially break supersymmetry. We compactify type IIB on T 4 and then further compactify on a circle with a duality…

Being self-dual, the instantons provide precisely two gravitino zero modes, thus might induce dynamical supersymmetry breaking and imply that all would-be Peccei-Quinn symmetries that arise in four-dimensional string theories are completely broken around the string compactification scale.
