More Dual Fluxes and Moduli Fixing
We generalize the recent proposal that invariance under T-duality leads to additional non-geometric fluxes required so that superpotentials in type IIA and type IIB orientifolds match. We show that
Fluxes, moduli fixing and MSSM-like vacua in a simple IIA orientifold
We study the effects of adding RR, NS and metric fluxes on a T^6/(\Omega (-1)^{F_L} I_3) Type IIA orientifold. By using the effective flux-induced superpotential we obtain Minkowski or AdS vacua with
Relating double field theory to the scalar potential of N = 2 gauged supergravity
A bstractThe double field theory action in the flux formulation is dimensionally reduced on a Calabi-Yau three-fold equipped with non-vanishing type IIB geometric and non-geometric fluxes. First, we
SUSY-breaking Soft Terms in a MSSM Magnetized D7-brane Model
We compute the SUSY-breaking soft terms in a magnetized D7-brane model with MSSM-like spectrum, under the general assumption of non-vanishing auxiliary fields of the dilaton and Kahler moduli. As a
The Swampland Distance Conjecture and towers of tensionless branes
Abstract The Swampland Distance Conjecture states that at infinite distance in the scalar moduli space an infinite tower of particles become exponentially massless. We study this issue in the
