Title: 
Dimensional reductions of Double Field Theory
Abstract: 

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].
