Title: Double and Exceptional Field Theory
Time: 2pm
Place: DRL 2N36
I review double field theory and recent progress in generalizing it to the
U-duality symmetries of M-theory. Specifically, I discuss extensions of 
11-dimensional supergravity and type IIB based on generalized spacetimes,
in which the exceptional groups E6 and E7 become manifest symmetries.
