We present an algorithm for computing line bundle valued cohomology classes over toric varieties. This is the basic starting point for computing massless modes in both heterotic and type IIB/F-theory compactifications, where the manifolds of interest are complete intersections of hypersurfaces in toric varieties supporting additional vector bundles.

TLDR
Applications to the computation of chiral massless matter spectra in string compactifications are discussed, and using the software package cohomCalg, its utility is highlighted on a new target space dual pair of (0,2) heterotic string models. Expand

Abstract It is shown that the recently proposed target-space duality for (0, 2) models is not limited to models admitting a Landau-Ginzburg description. By studying some generic examples it isExpand
