In the present paper we extend this analysis. We find many models with the minimal supersymmetric standard model spectra and an exact R parity. In…

Landscape of promising nonsupersymmetric string models

Leptoquarks extending the Standard Model (SM) are attracting an increasing attention in the recent literature. Hence, the identification of 4D SM-like models and the classification of allowed

A Comprehensive Scan for Heterotic SU(5) GUT models

A bstractCompactifications of heterotic theories on smooth Calabi-Yau manifolds remain one of the most promising approaches to string phenomenology. In two previous papers, arXiv:1106.4804 and

Family Unification via Quasi-Nambu-Goldstone Fermions in String Theory

Some of the supersymmetric nonlinear sigma models on exceptional groups (E7 or E8) are known to yield almost minimal necessary content of matter fields for phenomenological model building, including

Heterotic ℤ6–II MSSM orbifolds in blowup

Heterotic orbifolds provide promising constructions of MSSM-like models in string theory. We investigate the connection of such orbifold models with smooth Calabi-Yau compactifications by examining

The B-L/Electroweak Hierarchy in Heterotic String and M-Theory

E8 x E8 heterotic string and M-theory, when compactified on a Calabi-Yau threefold admitting an SU(4) vector bundle with Wilson lines, can give rise to the exact MSSM spectrum with three right-handed

Heterotic line bundle standard models

A bstractIn a previous publication, arXiv:1106.4804, we have found 200 models from heterotic Calabi-Yau compactifications with line bundles, which lead to standard models after taking appropriate

Heterotic orbifold resolutions as (2,0) gauged linear sigma models

In this work we attempt to bridge the gap between heterotic orbifold models and Calabi-Yau compactifications using gauged linear sigma models (GLSMs) with (2,0) worldsheet supersymmetry. We associate



A kind of prediction from string phenomenology: extra matter at low energy

We review the possibility that the Supersymmetric Standard Model arises from orbifold constructions of the E8×E8 Heterotic Superstring, and the phenomenological properties that such a model should

A novel string-derived $Z^\prime$ with stable proton, light neutrinos and R-parity violation

The standard model indicates the realization of grand unified structures in nature, and it can only be viewed as an effective theory below a higher energy cutoff. While the renormalizable standard

Local SU(5) unification from the heterotic string

We construct a 6D supergravity theory which emerges as intermediate step in the compactification of the heterotic string to the supersymmetric standard model in four dimensions. The theory has = 2

Supersymmetry versus Gauge Symmetry on the Heterotic Landscape

One of the goals of the landscape program in string theory is to extract information about the space of string vacua in the form of statistical correlations between phenomenological features that are

Discrete R-symmetry anomalies in heterotic orbifold models

Anomalies of discrete R symmetries appearing in heterotic orbifold models are studied. We find that the mixed anomalies for different gauge groups satisfy the universal Green-Schwarz condition,

Toric resolutions of heterotic orbifolds

We investigate resolutions of heterotic orbifolds using toric geometry. Our starting point is provided by the recently constructed heterotic models on explicit blowup of C{sup n}/Z{sub n}

String Landscape and the Standard Model of Particle Physics

In this paper we describe ideas about the string landscape, and how to relate it to the physics of the Standard Model of particle physics. First, we give a short status report about heterotic string

Leptogenesis with many neutrinos

We consider leptogenesis in scenarios with many neutrino singlets. We find that the lower bound for the reheating temperature can be significantly relaxed with respect to the hierarchical three
