Notes on Heterotic Compactifications

  title={Notes on Heterotic Compactifications},
  author={Eric J. Sharpe}
In this technical note we describe a pair of results on heterotic compactifications. First, we give an example demonstrating that the usual statement of the anomaly-freedom constraint for perturbative heterotic compactifications (meaning, matching second Chern characters) is incorrect for compactifications involving torsion-free sheaves. Secondly, we… CONTINUE READING
