We construct a simple local model of dynamical supersymmetry breaking. The model is a one-generation SU(5) that arises from a IIB Z{sub N} orientifold. It does not admit a runaway direction and is argued to stabilize the blowup mode related to the corresponding U(1) factor. The theory demonstrates the existence of a new class of ''blowup'' fractional branes.

Meta-Stable Vacua and D-Branes at the Conifold

We study gauge theories arising on D‐branes on quotients of the conifold. They exhibit meta‐stable SUSY breaking along the lines of the model by Intriligator, Seiberg and Shih. We propose a candidate

Supersymmetry breaking metastable vacua in runaway quiver gauge theories

In this paper we consider quiver gauge theories with fractional branes whose infrared dynamics removes the classical supersymmetric vacua (DSB branes). We show that addition of flavors to these

Starting from the gauge theory with fundamental and bifundamental flavors, we apply the Seiberg dual to the first gauge group and obtain the dual gauge theory with dual matters including the gauge

We introduce new techniques based on brane tilings to investigate D3-branes probing orientifolds of toric Calabi-Yau singularities. With these new tools, one can write down many orientifold models
