Tduality constraints on higher derivatives revisited
Here, we ask to what extent are the higherderivative corrections of string theory constrained by Tduality. The seminal early work by Meissner tests Tduality by reduction to one dimension using a distinguished choice of field variables in which the bosonic string action takes a GaussBonnettype form. By analyzing all field redefinitions that may or may not be duality covariant and may or may not be gauge covariant we extend the procedure to test Tduality starting from an action expressed in arbitrary field variables. We illustrate the method by showing that it determines uniquely the firstorder α' corrections of the bosonic string, up to terms that vanish in one dimension. We also use the method to glean information about the O(α'2) corrections in the double field theory with GreenSchwarz deformation.
