The D-brane superpotential is very important in the low energy effective theory. As the generating function of all disk instantons from the worldsheet point of view, it plays a crucial role in deriving some important properties of the compact Calabi-Yau manifolds. By using the generalized GKZ hypergeometric system, we will calculate the D-brane superpotentials of two non-Fermat type compact Calabi-Yau hypersurfaces in toric varieties, respectively. Then according to the mirror symmetry, we…

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,

For D-brane system with three D-branes on compact Calabi-Yau threefolds, the dual F-theory fourfolds for parallel/complete coincident/part coincident D-brane system is constructed by the type



Type II/F-theory Superpotentials and Ooguri-Vafa Invariants of Compact Calabi-Yau Threefolds with Three Deformations

We calculate the D-brane superpotentials for two Calabi-Yau manifolds with three deformations by the generalized hypergeometric GKZ systems, which give rise to the flux superpotentials

Off-shell D-brane/F-theory effective superpotentials and Ooguri Vafa invariants of several compact Calabi Yau manifolds

According to the open-closed mirror symmetry and generalized Gel'fand–Kapranov–Zelerinski (GKZ) system, we calculate off-shell D-brane/F-theory effective superpotentials of four compact Calabi–Yau

The geometry of D-brane superpotentials

A bstractThe disk partition function of the open topological string computes the spacetime superpotential for D-branes wrapping cycles of a compact Calabi-Yau threefold. We use string duality to show

Calculations for mirror symmetry with D-branes

We study normal functions capturing D-brane superpotentials on several one- and two-parameter Calabi-Yau hypersurfaces and complete intersections in weighted pro- jective space. We calculate in the

Effective Superpotentials for Compact D5-Brane Calabi-Yau Geometries

For compact Calabi-Yau geometries with D5-branes we study N = 1 effective superpotentials depending on both open- and closed-string fields. We develop methods to derive the open/closed Picard-Fuchs

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

In four-dimensional F-theory compactifications with N=1 supersymmetry the fields describing the dynamics of space-time filling 7-branes are part of the complex structure moduli space of the internal

We show how to compute terms in an expansion of the world-volume superpotential for fairly general D-branes on the quintic Calabi-Yau using linear sigma model techniques, and show in examples that

D-Branes on Calabi-Yau Manifolds

In this review we study BPS D-branes on Calabi-Yau threefolds. Such D-branes naturally divide into two sets called A-branes and B-branes which are most easily understood from topological field
