type II supergravity
Critical string models
Type II supergravity is a supergravity in dimension 10 which is the low-energy effective quantum field theory underlying type II string theory.
See the general references at supergravity.
In terms of (exceptional) generalized complex geometry
A relation of the U-duality symmetry to generalized complex geometry is discussed in
