String duality symmetries and theories with space-time supersymmetry

Objective



It is proposed to carry out research aimed at elucidating the phenomenon of duality symmetries in string theory, particularly in connection with the relationship of such symmetries to space-time supersymmetry. It is expected that new realizations of supersymmetries that are manifestly compatible with the duality symmetries will emerge. This will shed light on the symmetry structure of string theory itself and will allow a better understanding of the low-energy string effective actions and their relationship to supergravity theories.
