Nonabelian duality for open strings
Abstract
We examine nonabelian duality transformations in the open string case. After gauging the isometries of the target space and developing the general formalism, we study in detail the duals of target spaces with SO( N) isometries which, for the SO(2) case, reduces to the known abelian Tduals. We apply the formalism to electrically and magnetically charged 4D black hole solutions and, as in the abelian case, dual coordinates satisfy Dirichlet conditions.
