Topological Dynamics in the Physical and Biological Sciences

We recall that in the STU model, with axion/dilaton S, 2-torus complex structute T and Kahler form U, doubling the target space of the fundamental string from 2 dimensions to 4 renders manifest the SL(2)_T x SL(2)_U by combining worldsheet field equations and Bianchi identities [1] and that doubling the target space of the dual string from 2 dimensions to 4 renders manifest the SL(2)_S X SL (2)_U via the duality of dualities that interchanges S and T [2]. Here we show that the further doubling from 4 dimensions to 8 renders manifest the complete SL(2)_S x SL(2)_T x SL(2)_U and S-T-U triality by combining fields equations and Bianchi identities of all three S-, T- and U-strings [3].
