Gaugino condensation is discussed in the context of a consistent new version of low energy heterotic M-theory. The four dimensional reduction of the theory is described, based on simple boson and fermion backgrounds. This is generalised to include gaugino condenstates and various background fluxes, some with non-trivial topology. It is found that condensate and quantised flux contributions to the four-dimensional superpotential contain no corrections due to the warping of the higher dimensional…

Reducing heterotic M-theory to five dimensional supergravity on a manifold with boundary

This paper constructs the reduction of heterotic M-theory in eleven dimensions to a supergravity model on a manifold with boundary in five dimensions using a Calabi-Yau three-fold. New results are

Possible contributions to the bulk Casimir energy in heterotic M-theory

Some possible ways for the study of the contributions of some background fields to the bulk Casimir energy have been probed in the framework of the 5D heterotic M-theory.

I've Got the World on a Brane

This thesis treats several topics in the study of extra-dimensional models of the world, concerning Heterotic M-Theory and the dynamics of branes. We describe a reduction to five dimensions, over a


A matter bouncing entropy-corrected cosmological model has been suggested. The model allows only positive curvature with negative pressure and no violation of the null energy condition. The result

Big rip in Swiss-cheese Brane-worlds with cosmic transit

We study the big rip scienario in Swiss-cheese Brane-worlds. The results obtained have been found to be independent of the value of the cosmological constant Λ whether its positive, negative or zero.

Note on dark energy and cosmic transit in a scale-invariance cosmology

In general, the laws of physics are not invariant under a change of scale. To find out whether the 'scale-invariance hypothesis' corresponds to nature or not, a careful examination to its

We discuss the recently suggested Ricci–Gauss–Bonnet holographic dark energy in Chern–Simons modified gravity. We have tested some general forms of the scale factor [Formula: see text], and used two

The possibility of a stable flat dark energy-dominated Swiss-cheese brane-world universe

In this paper, we study the possibility of obtaining a stable flat dark energy-dominated universe in a good agreement with observations in the framework of Swiss-cheese Brane-world cosmology. Two

Cosmological determination to the values of the pre-factors in the logarithmic corrected entropy-area relation

In this paper, we continue investigating the possible values of the pre-factors α$\alpha $ and β$\beta $ in the logarithmic corrected entropy-area relation based on cosmological stability arguments.



Flux, gaugino condensation, and antibranes in heterotic M theory

We present the potential energy due to flux and gaugino condensation in heterotic M theory compactifications with antibranes in the vacuum. For reasons which we explain in detail, the contributions

Higher order terms in an improved heterotic M-theory

Curvature-squared terms are added to a consistent formulation of supergravity on manifolds with boundary which is meant to represent the low energy limit of strongly coupled heterotic string theory.

Vacuum stability in heterotic M theory

The problem of the stabilization of moduli is discussed within the context of compactified strongly coupled heterotic string theory. It is shown that all geometric, vector bundle, and five-brane

Supersymmetry breaking with zero vacuum energy in M-theory flux compactifications.

It is shown that the warped flux compactification background in heterotic M theory can solve the problem of supersymmetry in vacua with zero vacuum energy through a warp-factor suppression of the integer flux relative to the condensate.

Moduli Stabilization in Meta-Stable Heterotic Supergravity Vacua

We revisit the issue of moduli stabilization in a class of = 1 four dimensional supergravity theories which are low energy descriptions of standard perturbative heterotic string vacua compactified on

On Gaugino Condensation with Field-Dependent Gauge Couplings

We study in detail gaugino condensation in globally and locally supersymmetric Yang– Mills theories. We focus on models for which gauge-neutral matter couples to the gauge bosons only through
