We analyze a class of conical G2 metrics admitting two commuting isometries, together with a certain one-parameter family of G2 deformations which preserves these symmetries. Upon using recent results of Calderbank and Pedersen, we extract the IIA reduction of eleven-dimensional supergravity on such backgrounds, as well as its type IIB dual. The associated type II solutions are expected to contain 6-branes and 5-branes respectively. By studying the general asympotics of the IIA and IIB… 

M-theory compactifications on certain `toric' cones of G2 holonomy

We develop methods to study the singularities of certain G2 cones related to toric hyperkahler spaces and Einstein selfdual orbifolds. This allows us to determine the low energy gauge groups of

The Standard Model on the Quintic

We describe the general geometrical framework of brane world constructions in orientifolds of type IIA string theory with D6-branes wrapping 3-cycles in a Calabi-Yau 3-fold, and point out their

Domain walls of N = 2 supergravity in five dimensions from hypermultiplet moduli spaces

We study domain wall solutions in d = 5, N = 2 supergravity coupled to a single hypermultiplet whose moduli space is described by certain inhomogeneous, toric ESD manifolds constructed recently by

Intersecting 6-branes from new 7-manifolds with G(2) holonomy

We discuss a new family of metrics of 7-manifolds with G2 holonomy, which are 3 bundles over a quaternionic space. The metrics depend on five parameters and have two abelian isometries. Certain

Intersecting brane solutions in string and M-theory

We review various aspects of configurations of intersecting branes, including the conditions for preservation of supersymmetry. In particular, we discuss the projection conditions on the Killing

G-STRUCTURES AND DUALITY

After introducing the basic structure of string theory, we review some of the geometric tools used to describe string backgrounds, specifically those endowed with a certain amount of supersymmetry,

New spin(7) holonomy metrics admitting G 2 holonomy reductions and M-theory/type-IIA dualities

As is well known, when D6 branes wrap a special Lagrangian cycle on a noncompact Calabi-Yau threefold in such a way that the internal string frame metric is a Kaehler one there exists a dual

New G 2 holonomy metrics, D6 branes with inherent U(1)×U(1) isometry, and γ deformations

It is found the most general local form of the 11-dimensional supergravity backgrounds which, by reduction along one isometry, gives rise to IIA supergravity solutions with a RR field and a

M-theory conifolds.

First-order equations are found for a new family of G2 metrics D7, with S3 x S3 principal orbits, related at weak string coupling to the resolved conifold, allowing a deeper study of topology change and mirror symmetry in M-theory.

Unification of the Deformed and Resolved Conifolds

We find general first-order equations for G 2 metrics of cohomogeneity one with S 3 × S 3 principal orbits. These reduce in two special cases to previously-known systems of first-order equations that

Duality and Fibrations on G_2 Manifolds

We argue that G_2 manifolds for M-theory admitting string theory Calabi-Yau duals are fibered by coassociative submanifolds. Dual theories are constructed using the moduli space of M-five-brane

The condition of having an $N=1$ spacetime supersymmetry for heterotic string leads to 4 distinct possibilities for compactifications namely compactifications down to 6,4,3 and 2 dimensions.
