Physics of F-theory compactifications without section

- Mathematics
- 2014

A bstractWe study the physics of F-theory compactifications on genus-one fibrations without section by using an M-theory dual description. The five-dimensional action obtained by considering M-theory…

Type II string theory and modularity

- Mathematics
- 2005

This paper, in a sense, completes a series of three papers. In the previous two [1],[2], we have explored the possibility of refining the K-theory partition function in type II string theories using…

A Spin(7) Conifold Transition in Type IIB as an F-theory Flop

- Mathematics
- 2004

We consider type IIB string theory compactified on an 8-dimensional Spin(7) manifold with N D5-branes, undergoing a conifold transition to a geometry with no branes and N units of dual 3-form RR flux…

Mathematics Underlying the F-Theory/Heterotic String Duality in Eight Dimensions

- Mathematics
- 2005

We give an analytic description of the moduli space of classical vacua for F-theory compactified on elliptic K3 surfaces, on open tubular regions near the two Type II boundary divisors. The structure…

Evidence for F(uzz) theory

- Mathematics
- 2010

We show that in the decoupling limit of an F-theory compactification, the internal directions of the seven-branes must wrap a non-commutative four-cycle $ \mathcal{S} $. We introduce a general method…

Lectures on F-theory compactifications and model building

- Mathematics
- 2010

These lecture notes are devoted to formal and phenomenological aspects of F-theory. We begin with a pedagogical introduction to the general concepts of F-theory, covering classic topics such as the…

Aspects of Fibers, Fibrations and their Non-Compact Limits in F-theory and Topological String Theory

- Mathematics
- 2018

This thesis presents results about F-theory and topological string theory on genus one fibered Calabi-Yau manifolds and their non-compact limits. In the first part we work in the fiber based approach…

Compact Riemannian 7-manifolds with holonomy $G\sb 2$. II

- Mathematics
- 1996

This is the second of two papers about metrics of holonomy G2 on compact 7manifolds. In our first paper [15] we established the existence of a family of metrics of holonomy G2 on a single, compact,…

New Connections Between String Theories

- Mathematics, Physics
- 1989

We consider the R→0 limit of toroidal compactification in various string theories. This leads to new connections between seemingly different string theories: IIA and IIB, open and closed, oriented…
