Renormalisation perturbative et T-dualite - Nouvelles metriques d'Einstein et super-espace harmonique

Abstract : In the first part of the thesis, we adress ourselves the question of the quantum equivalence of non abelian T-dualised sigma-models. We prove that the one-loop renormalisability of initial sigma-models does imply the one-loop renormalisability of their dualised partner, and that they share the same beta functions. This is done for any principal sigma-models defined on a group manifold (G_L X G_R)/G_D with arbitrary breaking of G_R, and for the large class of four dimensional non-homogeneous metrics with an isometry group SU(2) X U(1). For the simple example of the T-dualised SU(2) sigma-model, which has been claimed to be non-renormalisable at the two-loop order, we prove that it is - at least up to this order - still possible to define a correct quantum theory by modifying, at the \hbar order, its target space metric in a finite manner. In the second part, we construct, using harmonic superspace and the quaternionic quotient approach, an explicit quaternionic-Kähler extension of the most general two centres hyper-Kähler metric. It possesses U(1) X U(1) isometry and contains as special cases the quaternionic-Kähler extensions of the Taub-NUT and Eguchi-Hanson metrics. It exhibits an extra one-parameter freedom which disappears in the hyper-Kähler limit.
