Phenomenological aspects of type IIB flux compactifications

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

: 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
