Covariant Derivatives in the Hull-Strominger System

This project will explore the relationship between covariant derivatives on a certain parameter space and deformation theory. The derivatives are covariant under a set of gauge symmetries on the moduli space. We aim to compute the second-order derivatives and determine to what extent they commute. This has an implication for whether the deformation theory of a set of PDEs deriving from string theory, known as the Hull-Strominger system, is commutative.
