Double sigma models and double field theory
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
AbstractI will show how the equations of motion of double field theory can also be derived as the one-loop background field equations of a double sigma model, both being the vanishing of the generalised Ricci tensor. This raises the possibility of deriving higher order corrections to double field theory from a sigma model approach.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
