Abstract: T-duality is a symmetry that relates string theories on two distinct manifolds. It has important ramifications in different areas of mathematics, such as algebra, geometry and topology, where it is related to constructions like Takai duality, mirror symmetry, Fourier-Mukai transforms, the Connes-Thom isomorphism, etc. In this talk I will give an overview of some of the recent developments in the field.
