**Compactification (mathematics)**— In mathematics, compactification is the process or result of making a topological space compact.[1] The methods of compactification are various, but each is a way of controlling points from going off to infinity by in some way adding points at… …5

**F-theory**— is a branch of string theory developed by Cumrun Vafa. The new vacua described as F theory were discovered by Vafa, and it also allowed string theorists to construct new realistic vacua mdash; in the form of F theory compactified on elliptically… …6

**Morse homology**— In mathematics, specifically in the field of differential topology, Morse homology is a homology theory defined for any smooth manifold. It is constructed using the smooth structure and an auxiliary metric on the manifold, but turns out to be… …7

**Supergravity**— In theoretical physics, supergravity (supergravity theory) is a field theory that combines the principles of supersymmetry and general relativity. Together, these imply that, in supergravity, the supersymmetry is a local symmetry (in contrast to… …9

**Cartan matrix**— In mathematics, the term Cartan matrix has two meanings. Both of these are named after the French mathematician Élie Cartan. In an example of Stigler s law of eponymy, Cartan matrices in the context of Lie algebras were first investigated by… …10

**Stueckelberg action**— In field theory, the Stueckelberg action (named after Ernst Stueckelberg) describes a massive spin 1 field as a R (the real numbers are the Lie algebra of U(1)) Yang Mills theory coupled to a real scalar field φ which takes on values in a real 1D …11

**Extension topology**— In topology, a branch of mathematics, an extension topology is a topology placed on the disjoint union of a topological space and another set. There are various types of extension topology, described in the sections below. Contents 1 Extension… …12

**String duality**— is a class of symmetries in physics that link different string theories, theories which assume that the fundamental building blocks of the universe are strings instead of point particles. Before the so called duality revolution there were… …
