Z_N orbifold models which have N=1 space-time supersymmetry are cxamined. All gauge groups of Z_N orbifold models are classified completely. 
Yukawa coupling condition of ZN orbifold models
Abstract Yukawa coupling conditions of Z N orbifold models are studied. We obtain physical states of Z N orbifold models explicitly. The selection rule of the space group and SO(10) invariance areExpand
Matrix Model on Z-Orbifold
Six-dimensional compactification of type IIA matrix model on the Z-orbifold is studied. Introducing a Z3 symmetry properly on the three mirror images of fields in the N-body system of theExpand
Analyses on the Wilson lines of ZN orbifold models
Abstract The Wilson lines of Z N orbifold models are studied. From analyses on the six-dimensional orbifolds, we obtain some features and restrictions on the Wilson lines, which are not found in theExpand
Gauge symmetries in heterotic asymmetric orbifolds
Abstract We study heterotic asymmetric orbifold models. By utilizing the lattice engineering technique, we classify ( 22 , 6 ) -dimensional Narain lattices with right-moving non-Abelian group factorsExpand
Study of minimal string unification in Z8 orbifold models
Abstract We study the construction of the minimal supersymmetric standard model from the Z 8 orbifold models. We use a target-space duality anomaly cancellation and a unification of gauge couplingsExpand
ZN orbifold models
ZN orbifolds are studied because of the possibility to dispose of six extra dimensions of E8×E′8 heterotic string theory and in order to obtain a realistic effective low-energy theory. All theExpand
String Theory on AdS Orbifolds
We consider worldsheet string theory on N orbifolds of AdS3 associated with conical singularities. If the orbifold action includes a similar twist of S3, supersymmetry is preserved, and there is aExpand
Minimal string unification and hidden sector in Z8 orbifold models
Abstract We study the minimal supersymmetric standard model derived from the Z 8 orbifold models and its hidden sectors. We use a target-space duality anomaly cancellation so as to investigate hiddenExpand
ℤ6-II Orbifold Model of the Heterotic String
We study a ℤ 6 -II orbifold model which is derived from the ten-dimensional SO(16) × SO(16) heterotic string theory whose the extra six dimensional space is devided by the ℤ6- II rotations. AllExpand
Three-generation asymmetric orbifold models from heterotic string theory
A bstractUsing Z3 asymmetric orbifolds in heterotic string theory, we construct $ \mathcal{N} $ = 1 SUSY three-generation models with the standard model gauge group SU(3)C  ×Expand


Description of a class of superstring compactifications related to semi-simple Lie algebras
A class of vacuum configurations in the superstring theory obtained by compactification of physical dimensions from ten to four is constructed. The compactification scheme involves taking quotientsExpand
