# Moduli stabilisation for chiral global models

@article{Cicoli2011ModuliSF, title={Moduli stabilisation for chiral global models}, author={Michele Cicoli and Christoph Mayrhofer and Roberto Valandro}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2011}, volume={2012}, pages={1-43} }

A bstractWe combine moduli stabilisation and (chiral) model building in a fully con-sistent global set-up in Type IIB/F-theory. We consider compactifications on Calabi-Yau orientifolds which admit an explicit description in terms of toric geometry. We build globally consistent compactifications with tadpole and Freed-Witten anomaly cancellation by choosing appropriate brane set-ups and world-volume fluxes which also give rise to SU(5) or MSSM-like chiral models. We fix all the Kähler moduli…
