M Theory
In the IIA case
the 11th dimension is a circle, whereas in the HE case it is a
line interval (so that the eleven-dimensional space-time has two ten-dimensional
boundaries). (S1 denotes a circle and I denotes a line interval.) There are many additional dualities that arise when more dimensions are compactified, which will not be described here. Previous |Next |
