# Line Bundle Hidden Sectors for Strongly Coupled Heterotic Standard Models

@article{Ashmore2020LineBH, title={Line Bundle Hidden Sectors for Strongly Coupled Heterotic Standard Models}, author={Anthony Ashmore and Sebastian Dumitru and Burt A. Ovrut}, journal={Fortschritte der Physik}, year={2020}, volume={69} }

We review the compactification to five‐dimensional heterotic M‐theory on a Schoen Calabi–Yau threefold and the specific SU(4) vector bundle leading to the “heterotic standard model” in the observable sector. Within strongly coupled heterotic M‐theory, a formalism for consistent hidden‐sector bundles associated with a single line bundle is presented, and a specific line bundle is introduced as a concrete example. Anomaly cancellation and the associated bulk space five‐branes are discussed in…
