Applying Aristotelean logic to Double Field Theory

Regular Seminar George Papadopoulos (King's College)

 at: 13:15 KCLroom G.01 abstract: Is there a consistent patching for double manifolds? I shall demonstrate that the solution of the strong section condition leads to exact 3-form field strengths. I shall also prove that the consistency of the examples presented so far depends on the choice of the atlas, and so they are not general covariant. Then I shall suggest a new construction which resolves some of the puzzles and possibly specifies the appropriate spaces up to homotopy.
