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

T-duality and U-duality in toroidally compactified strings

The heterotic string is a soliton

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

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.
