Abstract content

I will discuss the effective action of F-theory at order \alpha'^3 from a 12 dimensional perspective. Upon compactification on elliptic Calabi-Yau fourfolds, I will show how the non-trivial vacuum profile for the axio-dilaton leads to a new, genuinely N=1 correction to the 4-dimensional effective action.
