Isometries of low-energy heterotic M theory

Abstract:

We study the effective D=4, N=1 supergravity description of five-dimensional heterotic M theory in the presence of an M5 brane, and derive the Killing vectors and isometry group for the Kähler moduli-space metric. The group is found to be a non-semi-simple maximal parabolic subgroup of Sp(4,R), containing a nontrivial SL(2,R) factor. The underlying moduli space is then naturally realized as the group space Sp(4,R)/U(2), but equipped with a nonhomogeneous metric that is invariant only under th...
