CFT ’ s From Calabi-Yau Four-folds

  title={CFT ’ s From Calabi-Yau Four-folds},
  author={Sergei Gukov},
We consider F/M/Type IIA theory compactified to four, three, or two dimensions on a Calabi-Yau four-fold, and study the behavior near an isolated singularity in the presence of appropriate fluxes and branes. We analyze the vacuum and soliton structure of these models, and show that near an isolated singularity, one often generates massless chiral superfields and a superpotential, and in many instances in two or three dimensions one obtains nontrivial superconformal field theories. In the case… CONTINUE READING
