Abstract

We discuss heterotic corrections to quartic internal U(1) gauge couplings and check duality by calculating one-loop open string diagrams and identifying the D-instanton sum in the dual type I picture. We also compute SO(8)4 threshold corrections and finally R 2 corrections in type I theory.
