Resumen:
We perform a generalized Scherk-Schwarz dimensional reduction of Double Field Theoryon a twisted double torus. The four dimensional effective action is shown to exactlyreproduce the bosonic electric sector of gauged N=4 supergravity. We present explicitexpressions for the gaugings in terms of the twists, and analyze the associated stringbackgrounds. This framework provides a higher dimensional origin of the gaugings interms of generalized fluxes.
