# Dimensional reductions of Double Field Theory

The talk begins with a brief review of Double Field Theory (DFT), its
field content, symmetries and action. I will then analyze generalities
of Scherk-Schwarz dimensional reductions of DFT. In particular, the
connection between the four dimensional effective action and gauged N
= 4 supergravities will be discussed.
The talk is based on "The effective action of Double Field Theory",
arXiv:1109.0290 [hep-th].
