T-duality and the Gerbe in C-spaces

Regular Seminar Georgios Papadopoulos (King's College London)

13:15 KCL
room G01 Norfolk Building

I shall review proposals that have been made to patch doubled spaces and explain the difficulties that arise in an effort to achieve consistent patching. Then I shall propose a scheme based on C-spaces that leads to a consistent patching but requires additional coordinates to those of doubled spaces. The T-dual pairs are identified as subspaces of the gerbe in C-spaces. The talk is based on work done with Paul Howe, arXiv:1612.07968 [hep-th].
