# Building MSSM flux vacua

@article{Marchesano2004BuildingMF, title={Building MSSM flux vacua}, author={Fernando G. Marchesano and Gary Shiu}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2004}, volume={2004}, pages={041-041} }

We construct N=1 and N=0 chiral four-dimensional vacua of flux compactification in Type IIB string theory. These vacua have the common features that they are free of tadpole instabilities (both NSNS and RR) even for models with N=0 supersymmetry. In addition, the dilaton/complex structure moduli are stabilised and the supergravity background metric is warped. We present an example in which the low energy spectrum contains the MSSM spectrum with three generations of chiral matter. In the N=0… Expand
