Small book cover: Superstring Cosmology

Superstring Cosmology
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 161

Description:
Aspects of superstring cosmology are reviewed with an emphasis on the cosmological implications of duality symmetries in the theory. The string effective actions are summarized and toroidal compactification to four dimensions reviewed. Global symmetries that arise in the compactification are discussed and the duality relationships between the string effective actions are then highlighted.
