We discuss compactifications of heterotic string theory to four dimensions in the presence of H–fluxes, which deform the geometry of the internal manifold, and a gaugino condensate which breaks supersymmetry. We focus on the compensation of the two effects in order to obtain vacua with zero cosmological constant and we comment on the effective superpotential describing these vacua. 

AdS strings with torsion: Noncomplex heterotic compactifications

Combining the effects of fluxes and gaugino condensation in heterotic supergravity, we use a ten-dimensional approach to find a new class of four-dimensional supersymmetric AdS4 compactifications on

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

Fluxes, gaugings and gaugino condensates

Based on the correspondence between the N = 1 superstring compactifications with fluxes and the N = 4 gauged supergravities, we study effective N = 1 four-dimensional supergravity potentials arising

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

String compactifications with fluxes

We review the main features of string compactifications in the presence of non-trivial fluxes for various form fields in ten dimensions. After an elementary introduction to the topic, we focus the

Heterotic on Half-flat

We study the effective action of the heterotic string compactified on particular half-flat manifolds which arise in the context of mirror symmetry with NS-NS flux. We explicitly derive the superpotential

Stringy corrections to Kahler potentials, SUSY breaking, and the cosmological constant problem

The moduli of N = 1 compactifications of IIB string theory can be stabilized by a combination of fluxes (which freeze complex structure moduli and the dilaton) and nonperturbative superpotentials



BPS Action and Superpotential for Heterotic String Compactifications with Fluxes

We consider = 1 compactifications to four dimensions of heterotic string theory in the presence of fluxes. We show that up to order (α'2) the associated action can be written as a sum of squares of


We present the supersymmetric quartic effective action for the heterotic string which follows from the supersymmetrization of the Yang-Mills and Lorentz Chern-Simons forms. This includes all bosonic
