AdS strings with torsion: Noncomplex heterotic compactifications

Combining the effects of fluxes and gaugino condensation in heterotic supergravity, we use a ten-dimensional approach to find a new class of four-dimensional supersymmetric AdS4 compactifications on

The dimensional reduction and Kähler metric of forms in flux and warping

A bstractWe present a first-principles derivation of the Kähler metric for axion-like moduli of conformally Calabi-Yau compactifications of IIB string theory with imaginary self-dual 3-form flux at

Model Building and Phenomenology of Flux-Induced Supersymmetry Breaking on D 3-branes

We study supersymmetry breaking effects induced on D3-branes at singularities by the presence of NSNS and RR 3-form fluxes. First, we discuss some local constructions of chiral models from D3-branes

Large-volume flux compactifications: Moduli spectrum and D3/D7 soft supersymmetry breaking

We present an explicit calculation of the spectrum of a general class of string models, corresponding to Calabi-Yau flux compactifications with h1,2 > h1,1 > 1 with leading perturbative and

On the four-dimensional effective theories in brane-worlds

Models with extra dimensions have attracted much interest recently because they may provide the solution for long standing problems in physics. One interesting and very attractive idea is that our



Hierarchies from fluxes in string compactifications

Warped compactifications with significant warping provide one of the few known mechanisms for naturally generating large hierarchies of physical scales. We demonstrate that this mechanism is

Potentials from fluxes

We discuss the compactification of type IIB supergravity with fluxes to generate a potential for the moduli. In particular we resolve an apparent conflict with the no-go theorem for de Sitter space.

M theory, orientifolds and G - flux

We study the properties of M and F theory compactifications to three and four dimensions with background fluxes. We provide a simple construction of supersymmetric vacua, including some with

Effective action of string theory flux compactifications

We discuss four dimensional effective actions of string theory flux compactifications. These effective actions describe four dimensional gravity coupled to overall Kahler modulus of the
