Dualisation of supergravity theories

Yılmaz, Nejat Tevfik
By using the Kaluza-Klein reduction, the derivation of the maximal supergravities from the D=11 supergravity theory, as well as the Abelian Yang-Mills supergravities from the D=10 type I supergravity theory are discussed. After a thorough review of the symmetric spaces the symmetric space sigma model is studied in detail. The first-order formulation of both the pure and the matter coupled symmetric space sigma model is presented in a general formalism. The dualisation of the non-gravitational Bosonic sectors of the D=11, IIB and the maximal supergravities are also reviewed in a concise but a self-contained formulation. As an example of the dualisation of the matter coupled supergravities, the doubled formalism is constructed for the D=8 Salam-Sezgin supergravity.


The electronic band structure of III (in, al, ga)-v (n, as, sb) compounds and ternary alloys
Mohammad, Rezek Mahmoud Salim; Katırcıoğlu, Şenay; Department of Physics (2005)
In this work, the electronic band structure of III (In, Al, Ga) - V (N, As, Sb) compounds and their ternary alloys have been investigated by density functional theory (DFT) within generalized gradient approximation (GGA) and empirical tight binding (ETB) calculations, respectively. The present DFT-GGA calculations have shown direct band gap structures in zinc-blende phase for InN, InAs, InSb, GaN, and GaAs. However, indirect band gap structures have been obtained for cubic AlN, AlSb and AlAs com- pounds; he...
Dualisation of the general scalar coset in supergravity theories
Yilmaz, NT (Elsevier BV, 2003-08-04)
The dualised formulation of the symmetric space sigma model is peformed for a general scalar coset G/K where G is a maximally non-compact group and K is it's maximal compact subgroup. By using the twisted self-duality condition the general form of the first-order equations are obtained. The results are applied to the example of SL(2, R)/SO(2) scalar manifold of the IIB supergravity.

A rigorous derivation of the relationship between the vibrational coordinates belonging to two different electronic states of a polyatomic molecule is given. Contrary to common supposition, it is shown that this transformation is generally nonlinear and nonorthogonal. The nonlinearity arises because each electronic state has its own molecule-fixed axis system, and hence axis-switching effects, first discussed by Hougen and Watson (Canad. J. Phys. 43, 298–320 (1965)), must be taken into account. Explicit exp...
Dual Killing-Yano symmetry and multipole moments in electromagnetism and mechanics of continua
Baleanu, D; Dubovik, VM; Misicu, S (1999-10-01)
In this work we introduce the Killing-Yano symmetry on the phase space and we investigate the symplectic structure on the space of Killing-Yano tensors. We perform the detailed analyze of the n-dimensional flat space and the Riemaniann manifolds with constant scalar curvature. We investigate the form of some multipole tensors, which. arise in the expansion of a system of charges and currents, in terms of second-order Killing-Yano tensors in the phase space of classical mechanics. We find some relations betw...
Noncommutative nonlinear sigma models and integrability
Kürkcüoğlu, Seçkin (American Physical Society (APS), 2008-09-01)
We first review the result that the noncommutative principal chiral model has an infinite tower of conserved currents and discuss the special case of the noncommutative CP1 model in some detail. Next, we focus our attention to a submodel of the CP1 model in the noncommutative spacetime A(theta)(R2+1). By extending a generalized zero-curvature representation to A(theta)(R2+1) we discuss its integrability and construct its infinitely many conserved currents. A supersymmetric principal chiral model with and wi...
