Abstract: The hypermultiplet moduli space in Type IIA string theory compactified on a rigid Calabi-Yau threefold X , corresponding to the “universal hypermultiplet”, is described at tree-level by the symmetric space SU(2,1)/(SU(2)×U(1)). To determine the quantum corrections to this metric, we posit that a discrete subgroup of the continuous tree-level isometry group SU(2,1), namely the Picard modular group SU(2,1;Z[i]), must remain un- broken in the exact metric – including all perturbative and non-perturbative quantum cor- rections. This assumption is expected to be valid when X admits complex multiplication by Z[i]. Based on this hypothesis, we construct an SU(2,1;Z[i])-invariant, non-holomorphic Eisenstein series, and tentatively propose that this Eisenstein series provides the exact contact potential on the twistor space over the universal hypermultiplet moduli space. We analyze its non-Abelian Fourier expansion, and show that the Abelian and non-Abelian Fourier coefficients take the required form for instanton corrections due to Euclidean D2- branes wrapping special Lagrangian submanifolds, and to Euclidean NS5-branes wrapping the entire Calabi-Yau threefold, respectively. While this tentative proposal fails to repro- duce the correct one-loop correction, the consistency of the Fourier expansion with physics expectations provides strong support for the usefulness of the Picard modular group in constraining the quantum moduli space.
