### Phenomenological aspects of type IIB flux compactifications

- Physics
- 2009

The purpose of this work is to investigate how phenomenologically successful constructions in the field of high energy physics can be embedded into a fundamental theory, and what we can learn from…

### Non-Gaussianity in D3-brane inflation

- PhysicsJournal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics
- 2022

We update predictions for observables in the `delicate' D3/D3 inflationary model on the conifold. We use a full CMB likelihood calculation to assess goodness-of-fit, which is necessary because in…

### Astrophysical and cosmological consequences of string-inspired models

- Physics
- 2017

The standard model of cosmology, namely the ΛCDM model, is based on Einstein’s theory of General Relativity (GR) with a Cold Dark Matter (CDM) content and a positive cosmological constant Λ, in…

### Aspects of inflation in string theory

- Physics
- 2015

In this thesis we make small steps towards the ambitious goal of a microphysical understanding of the inflationary era in the early universe. We identify three key questions that require a proper…

### de Sitter vacua in type IIB string theory: classical solutions and quantum corrections

- Physics
- 2014

A bstractWe revisit the classical theory of ten-dimensional two-derivative gravity coupled to fluxes, scalar fields, D-branes, anti D-branes and Orientifold-planes. We show that such set-ups do not…

### Pyrotechnic Universe Typeset Using Revt E X 1

- Physics
- 2008

One of the central points of the ekpyrotic cosmological scenario based on Hor̆ava-Witten theory is that we live on a negative tension brane. However, the tension of the visible brane is positive in…

### Inflation in realistic D-brane models

- Physics
- 2004

We find successful models of D-brane/anti-brane inflation within a string context. We work within the GKP-LT class of type IIB string vacua for which many moduli are stabilized through fluxes, as…

### McGill-04 / 04 Inflation in Realistic D-Brane Models

- Physics
- 2004

We find successful models of D-brane/anti-brane inflation within a string context. We work within the GKP-IKLT class of type IIB string vacua for which many moduli are stabilized through fluxes, as…

### Pyrotechnic Universe

- Physics
- 2001

One of the central points of the ekpyrotic cosmological scenario based on Ho˘rava-Witten theory is that we live on a negative tension brane. However, the tension of the visible brane is positive in…

### Manyfold universe

- Physics

: We propose that our world is a brane folded many times inside the sub-millimeter extra dimensions. The folding produces many connected parallel branes or folds with identical microphysics | a…

Abstract For each n > 0, two alternative axiomatizations of the theory of strings over n alphabetic characters are presented. One class of axiomatizations derives from Tarski's system of the…
