Description

We give the manifestly T-dual formulation of the massless sector of the classical 3D Type II superstring in off-shell 3D N = 2 superspace, including the action. It has a simple relation to the known superspace of 4D N = 1 supergravity in 4D M-theory via 5D F-theory. The prepotential appears as part of the vielbein, without derivatives.
