We give a simplified definition of topological T-duality that applies to arbitrary torus bundles. The new definition does not involve Chern classes or spectral sequences, only gerbes and morphisms between them. All the familiar topological conditions for T-duals are shown to follow. We determine necessary and sufficient conditions for existence of a T-dual in the case of affine torus bundles. This is general enough to include all principal torus bundles as well as torus bundles with arbitrary...
Let $\mathcal{M}_{n,d}$ be the moduli space of semi-stable rank $n$, trace-free Higgs bundles with fixed determinant of degree $d$ on a Riemann surface of genus at least $3$. We determine the following automorphism groups of $\mathcal{M}_{n,d}$: (i) the group of automorphisms as a complex analytic variety, (ii) the group of holomorphic symplectomorphisms, (iii) the group of K\"ahler isomorphisms, (iv) the group of automorphisms of the quaternionic structure, (v) the group of hyper-K\"ahler is...
In this paper, we use reduction by extended actions to give a construction of transitive Courant algebroids from string classes. We prove that T-duality commutes with the reductions and thereby determine global conditions for the existence of T-duals in heterotic string theory. In particular we find that T-duality exchanges string structures and gives an isomorphism of transitive Courant algebroids. Consequently we derive the T-duality transformation for generalised metrics and show that the ...
We construct the moduli space of contact instantons, an analogue of Yang-Mills instantons defined for contact metric $5$-manifolds and initiate the study of their structure. In the $K$-contact case we give sufficient conditions for smoothness of the moduli space away from reducible connections and show the dimension is given by the index of an operator elliptic transverse to the Reeb foliation. The moduli spaces are shown to be K\"ahler when the $5$-manifold $M$ is Sasakian and hyperK\"ahler ...
Given an abelian category $\mathcal{A}$ with enough injectives we show that a short exact sequence of chain complexes of objects in $\mathcal{A}$ gives rise to a short exact sequence of Cartan-Eilenberg resolutions. Using this we construct coboundary morphisms between Grothendieck spectral sequences associated to objects in a short exact sequence. We show that the coboundary preserves the filtrations associated with the spectral sequences and give an application of these result to filtrations...
We extend topological T-duality to the case of general circle bundles. In this setting we prove existence and uniqueness of T-duals. We then show that T-dual spaces have isomorphic twisted cohomology, twisted $K$-theory and Courant algebroids. A novel feature is that we must consider two kinds of twists in de Rham cohomology and $K$-theory, namely by degree 3 integral classes and a less familiar kind of twist using real line bundles. We give some examples of T-dual non-oriented circle bundles...
Let $G$ be a compact, connected, simply-connected Lie group. We use the Fourier-Mukai transform in twisted $K$-theory to give a new proof of the ring structure of the $K$-theory of $G$.
A generalized complex manifold which satisfies the $\partial \overline{\partial}$-lemma admits a Hodge decomposition in twisted cohomology. Using a Courant algebroid theoretic approach we study the behavior of the Hodge decomposition in smooth and holomorphic families of generalized complex manifolds. In particular we define period maps, prove a Griffiths transversality theorem and show that for holomorphic families the period maps are holomorphic. Further results on the Hodge decomposition f...
We introduce conformal Courant algebroids, a mild generalization of Courant algebroids in which only a conformal structure rather than a bilinear form is assumed. We introduce exact conformal Courant algebroids and show they are classified by pairs $(L,H)$ with $L$ a flat line bundle and $H \in H^3(M,L)$ a degree 3 class with coefficients in $L$. As a special case gerbes for the crossed module $({\rm U}(1) \to \mathbb{Z}_2)$ can be used to twist $TM \oplus T^*M$ into a conformal Courant algeb...
