Description

Compactifications on manifolds whose size is of the order of the string length reveal purely stringy phenomena such as very light modes corresponding to strings winding around the space. As a consequence, the usual low-energy description of string compactifications given by field theory breaks down. In this talk I will review the basic features of compactifications on tori of string size, and we will see how one can get a low-energy effective action from the so-called double field theory.
