Emergent Gravity and geometric T-duality

Raju Roychowdhury

Darboux theorem and Moser lemma in symplectic geometry are the two
essential ingredients of emergent gravity. Generalized geometry naturally
provides the framework for such a systematic approach to non-symmetric
metric gravity and gives rise to the group of Courant automorphism $Diff(M)
\ltimes \Omega_{closed}^{2}(M)$ for the Pontryagin bundle $TM \oplus T^*M$. As
further consequences of generalized geometry and Courant algebroid structure
we found the imprints of Dirac structure in emergent gravity. The
non-degeneracy and closure of the symplectic 2-form enable us to set up a
connection between emergent gravity and Big isotropic structure of Vaisman. We
also propose a geometric T-dual of emergent gravity implemented using Gysin
sequence in the cohomology of oriented circle bundles.
