(17.05.) Mirrored CY automorphisms and non-geometric compactifications

I will present recent work about non-geometric supersymmetric compactifications of type II superstring theories based on K3 CFTs in the Landau-Ginzburg regime. I will explain how the underlying symmetries combine automorphisms of mirror pairs of K3 surfaces in the appropriate sense, and present the corresponding four-dimensional gauge supergravities that provide their low-energy effective action.
