A new construction of Calabi–Yau manifolds: Generalized CICYs
Abstract We present a generalization of the complete intersection in products of projective space (CICY) construction of Calabi–Yau manifolds. CICY three-folds and four-folds have been studiedExpand

Algebroids, heterotic moduli spaces and the Strominger system
A bstractIn this paper we study compactifications of heterotic string theory on manifolds satisfying the ∂∂¯$$ \partial \overline{\partial} $$-lemma. We consider the Strominger system description ofExpand

Heterotic line bundle standard models
A bstractIn a previous publication, arXiv:1106.4804, we have found 200 models from heterotic Calabi-Yau compactifications with line bundles, which lead to standard models after taking appropriateExpand

Two Hundred Heterotic Standard Models on Smooth Calabi-Yau Threefolds
We construct heterotic standard models by compactifying on smooth Calabi-Yau three-folds in the presence of purely Abelian internal gauge fields. A systematic search over complete intersectionExpand

Stabilizing the complex structure in heterotic Calabi-Yau vacua
In this paper, we show that the presence of gauge fields in heterotic Calabi-Yau compactifications can cause the stabilization of some, or all, of the complex structure moduli while maintaining aExpand

The Atiyah class and complex structure stabilization in heterotic Calabi-Yau compactifications
Holomorphic gauge fields in N = 1 supersymmetri cheterotic compactifications can constrain the complex structure moduli of a Calabi-Yau manifold. In this paper, the tools necessary to use holomorphicExpand

Stabilizing all geometric moduli in heterotic Calabi-Yau vacua
We propose a scenario to stabilize all geometric moduli - that is, the complex structure, Kahler moduli and the dilaton - in smooth heterotic Calabi-Yau compactifications without Neveu-SchwarzExpand

Physics of F-theory compactifications without section
A bstractWe study the physics of F-theory compactifications on genus-one fibrations without section by using an M-theory dual description. The five-dimensional action obtained by considering M-theoryExpand

Monad bundles in heterotic string compactifications
In this paper, we study positive monad vector bundles on complete intersection Calabi-Yau manifolds in the context of E8 × E8 heterotic string compactifications. We show that the class of suchExpand

Fibrations in CICY threefolds
A bstractIn this work we systematically enumerate genus one fibrations in the class of 7, 890 Calabi-Yau manifolds defined as complete intersections in products of projective spaces, the so-calledExpand
