Massless modes of both heterotic and Type II string compactifications on compact manifolds are determined by vector bundle valued cohomology classes. Various applications of our recent algorithm for the computation of line bundle valued cohomology classes over toric varieties are presented. For the heterotic string, the prime examples are so-called monad constructions on Calabi-Yau manifolds. In the context of Type II orientifolds, one often needs to compute cohomology for line bundles on…

Computational Tools for Cohomology of Toric Varieties
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.
Cohomology of line bundles: A computational algorithm

Chow groups, Deligne cohomology and massless matter in F-theory
We propose a method to compute the exact number of charged localized massless matter states in an F-theory compactification on a Calabi-Yau 4-fold with non-trivial 3-form data. Our starting point is

Vector bundle extensions, sheaf cohomology, and the heterotic standard model
Stable, holomorphic vector bundles are constructed on an torus fibered, non-simply connected Calabi-Yau threefold using the method of bundle extensions. Since the manifold is multiply connected, we

In this chapter we compute the dimension of every cohomology group of every line bundle L on a complex torus X = V/∧ (see Theorem 3.5.5). As a direct consequence we get a formula for the

Toric varieties are algebraic varieties arising from elementary geometric and combinatorial objects such as convex polytopes in Euclidean space with vertices on lattice points. Since many algebraic
