Title: Low energy effective actions, consistent truncations and generalised geometry

Michela Petrini (LPTHE, Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France)

 

Abstract:  

 An important problem in string theory is the derivation of sensible
 low energy effective actions. Consistent truncations provide an answer to
 this question. I will introduce consistent truncations and discuss how
 generalised geometry allows for interesting progress in the derivation
 of such constructions
