**Superstring Cosmology**

by James E. Lidsey, David Wands, E. J. Copeland

**Publisher**: arXiv 2000**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.
