Effective actions and topological strings : Off-shell mirror symmetry and mock modularity of multiple M5-branes

This thesis addresses two different topics within the field of string theory. In the first part it is shown how Hodge-theoretic methods in conjunction with open string mirror symmetry can be used to

Effective Superpotentials of Type II D-brane/F-theory on Compact Complete Intersection Calabi-Yau Threefolds

In this paper, we extend the GKZ-system method to the more general case: compact Complete Intersection Calabi-Yau manifolds (CICY). For several one-deformation modulus compact CICYs with D-branes,

Five-brane superpotentials, blow-up geometries and SU(3) structure manifolds

We investigate the dynamics of space-time filling five-branes wrapped on curves in heterotic and orientifold Calabi-Yau compactifications. We first study the leading $ \mathcal{N} = 1 $ scalar

F-theoretic vs microscopic description of a conformal N = 2 SYM theory

: The F-theory background of four D7 branes in a type I ′ orientifold was conjectured to be described by the Seiberg-Witten curve for the superconformal SU(2) gauge theory with four flavors. This

D-brane superpotentials, SU(2) Ooguri-Vafa invariants and TypeII/F -theory duality

The phase transitions are studied for the D-brane systems with multiple open-string moduli in terms of toric geometry: between the parallel D-brane phase corresponding to the Coulomb branch and the

F-theoretic vs microscopic description of a conformal $ \mathcal{N} = 2 $ SYM theory

The F-theory background of four D7 branes in a type I′ orientifold was conjectured to be described by the Seiberg-Witten curve for the superconformal SU(2) gauge theory with four flavors. This

Gauge fluxes in F-theory and type IIB orientifolds

We provide a detailed correspondence between G4 gauge fluxes in F-theory compactifications with SU(n) and SU(n) × U(1) gauge symmetry and their Type IIB orientifold limit. Based on the resolution of

We study the superpotential of a certain class ofN = 1 supersymmetric type II compactications with fluxes andD-branes. We show that it has an important two-dimensional meaning in terms of a chiral

We study the topological zero mode sector of type II strings on a Kahler manifold X in the presence of boundaries. We construct two nite bases, in a sense bosonic and fermionic, that generate the the

We study the open string extension of the mirror map for N=1 supersymmetric type II vacua with D-branes on non-compact Calabi-Yau manifolds. Its definition is given in terms of a system of
