We review several topics of interest in the study of 4d N=1 supersymmetric compactifications of the heterotic string. After a brief introduction to the construction of such models, our focus is on the novel physics which occurs at singularities in the moduli space of vacua. Among the phenomena we discuss are nonperturbative superpotentials, dynamical generation of poles in various low-energy couplings, and phase transitions which change the net number of chiral generations.
