Towards realizing dynamical SUSY breaking in heterotic model building

We study a new mechanism to dynamically break supersymmetry in the E8 × E8 heterotic string. As discussed recently in the literature, a long-lived, meta-stable non-supersymmetric vacuum can be

Dynamical SUSY breaking in heterotic M-theory

Thermal evolution of the non-supersymmetric metastable vacua in N = 2 SU(2) SYM softly broken to N = 1

: It has been shown that four dimensional N = 2 gauge theories, softly broken to N = 1 by a superpotential term, can accommodate metastable non-supersymmetric vacua in their moduli space. We study

Meta-Stable Brane Configuration and Gauged Flavor Symmetry

Starting from an $\mathcal{N}=1$ supersymmetric electric gauge theory with the gauge group Sp(Nc) × SO(2N′c) with fundamentals for the first gauge group factor and a bifundamental, we apply Seiberg


Starting from an supersymmetric electric gauge theory with the gauge group with fundamentals for each gauge group, the bifundamentals, a symmetric flavor and a conjugate symmetric flavor for SU(Nc),


Starting from an ${\mathcal N}=1$ supersymmetric electric gauge theory with the multiple product gauge group and the bifundamentals, we apply Seiberg dual to each gauge group, obtain the ${\mathcal

Nonsupersymmetric Flux Vacua and Perturbed N=2 Systems

We geometrically engineer Script N = 2 theories perturbed by a superpotential by adding 3-form flux with support at infinity to local Calabi-Yau geometries in type IIB. This allows us to apply the

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



Branes and dynamical supersymmetry breaking

Dynamical SUSY breaking at meta-stable minima from D-branes at obstructed geometries

We study the existence of long-lived meta-stable supersymmetry breaking vacua in gauge theories with massless quarks, upon the addition of extra massive flavors. A simple realization is provided by a

Strong coupling dynamics of four-dimensional $N = 1$ gauge theories from M-theory fivebrane

It has been known that the fivebrane of type IIA theory can be used to give an exact low energy description of N=2 supersymmetric gauge theories in four dimensions. We follow the recent M theory

De Sitter vacua in string theory

We outline the construction of metastable de Sitter vacua of type IIB string theory. Our starting point is highly warped IIB compactifications with nontrivial NS and RR three-form fluxes. By

The main contribution of the present work is that it is given a careful and self-contained treatment of limit points and singularities to prove that in the absence of a superpotential the classical moduli space is the algebraic variety described by the set of all holomorphic gauge-invariant polynomials.

A Comment on Duality in N=1 Supersymmetric Non -- Abelian Gauge Theories

Geometric Transitions and N=1 Quiver Theories

We construct N=1 supersymmetric theories on worldvolumes of D5 branes wrapped around 2-cycles of threefolds which are A-D-E fibrations over a plane. We propose large N duals as geometric transitions
