Generalised Geometries and Lie Algebroid Gauging

Wright, Kyle

Description

This thesis investigates the role of algebroid geometries in string theory. Differential geometry provides the framework for general relativity and point particle dynamics. The dynamics of strings and higher dimensional branes are most naturally described by algebroid geometry on vector bundles---with fluxes being incorporated as geometric data describing twisted vector bundles. This thesis contains original results in two areas: Firstly, twisted generalised contact structures and generalised...[Show more]
