Abstract In this paper we investigate compactifications of the type II and heterotic string on four-dimensional spaces with nongeometric monodromies. We explicitly construct backgrounds which contain… (More)

In this paper, we use orbifold methods to construct nongeometric backgrounds, and argue that they correspond to the spacetimes discussed in [1], [2]. More precisely, we make explicit through several… (More)

We conjecture that the end point of bulk closed string tachyon decay at any non-zero coupling, is the annihilation of space time by Witten's bubble of nothing, resulting in a topological phase of the… (More)

We investigate the Holographic Entanglement Entropy proposal in the context of the (3+1)-dimensional topological black hole. In contrast to the well-studied (2+1)-dimensional case, the maximal… (More)

We consider two concepts often discussed as significant features of general relativity (particularly when contrasted with the other forces of the Standard Model): background independence and… (More)

We consider topological constraints that must be satisfied by formulations of gravitation as a gauge theory. To facilitate the analysis we review and further justify the composite bundle formalism of… (More)

We perform a double quotient of global AdS$_4$ and study its thermal properties. We find that a double quotient yields a spacetime with an expanding compact dimension. Studying the entanglement of… (More)

We argue that traditional methods of compactification of string theory make it very difficult to understand how the cosmological constant becomes zero. String inspired models can give zero… (More)

We investigate and interpret a large class of soliton solutions found in noncommutative tachyon condensation. These constructions make extensive use of the idea that Dp-branes may be built out of… (More)
