# Heterotic string compactifications on half-flat manifolds II

@article{Gurrieri2007HeteroticSC, title={Heterotic string compactifications on half-flat manifolds II}, author={Sebastien Gurrieri and Andr{\'e} Lukas and Andrei Micu}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2007}, volume={2007}, pages={081-081} }

In this paper, we continue the analysis of heterotic string compactifications on half-flat mirror manifolds by including the 10-dimensional gauge fields. It is argued, that the heterotic Bianchi identity is solved by a variant of the standard embedding. Then, the resulting gauge group in four dimensions is still E6 despite the fact that the Levi-Civita connection has SO(6) holonomy. We derive the associated four-dimensional effective theories including matter field terms for such…
