Abstract

In type II theories compactified on Calabi-Yau manifolds the moduli fields are accompanied by (Ramond-Ramond) scalar superpartners. N = 2 space-time supersymmetry requires the low-energy effective mutual interaction of these excitations be described by a quaternionic σ-model in target space. In this paper we explicitly construct these manifolds from the restricted Kähler geometry of the moduli space of arbitrary (2,2) superconformal systems.
