The real Fourier-Mukai transform of Cayley cycles

11 Jan 2021  ·  Kotaro Kawai, Hikaru Yamamoto ·

The real Fourier-Mukai transform sends a section of a torus fibration to a connection over the total space of the dual torus fibration. By this method, Leung, Yau and Zaslow introduced deformed Hermitian Yang-Mills (dHYM) connections for K\"ahler manifolds and Lee and Leung introduced deformed Donaldson-Thomas (dDT) connections for $G_2$- and ${\rm Spin}(7)$-manifolds... In this paper, we suggest an alternative definition of a dDT connection for a manifold with a ${\rm Spin}(7)$-structure which seems to be more appropriate by carefully computing the real Fourier-Mukai transform again. We also post some evidences showing that the definition we suggest is compatible with dDT connections for a $G_2$-manifold and dHYM connections of a Calabi-Yau 4-manifold. Another importance of this paper is that it motivates our study in our other papers. That is, based on the computations in this paper, we develop the theories of deformations of dDT connections for a manifold with a ${\rm Spin}(7)$-structure and the "mirror" of the volume functional, which is called the Dirac-Born-Infeld (DBI) action in physics. read more
