T-duality in rational homotopy theory via $L_\infty$-algebras

on rational topological T-duality in superstring theory formulated via L-∞ algebras.
Abstract We combine Sullivan models from rational homotopy theory with Stasheff‘s L-∞ algebras to describe a duality in string theory. Namely, what in string theory is known as topological T-duality between K0-cocycles in type IIA string theory and K1-cocycles in type IIB string theory, or as Hori’s formula, may be recognized as a Fourier-Mukai transform between twisted cohomologies when regarded through the lenses of rational homotopy theory. We show this as an example of topological T-duality in rational homotopy theory, which in turn can be completely formulated in terms of morphisms of L-∞ algebras.
