# Local models for intersecting brane worlds

@article{Uranga2002LocalMF, title={Local models for intersecting brane worlds}, author={{\'A}ngel M. Uranga}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2002}, volume={2002}, pages={058-058} }

We describe the construction of configurations of D6-branes wrapped on compact 3-cycles intersecting at points in non-compact Calabi-Yau threefolds. Such constructions provide local models of intersecting brane worlds, and describe sectors of four-dimensional gauge theories with chiral fermions. We present several classes of non-compact manifolds with compact 3-cycles intersecting at points, and discuss the rules required for model building with wrapped D6-branes. The rules to build 3-cycles…
