We systematically study the phases of generic toric singularities, using methods initiated in hep-th/0612046. These correspond to large volume limits of certain Gauged Linear Sigma Models. We show that complete information about the classical regimes of generic U(1)r GLSMs can be obtained by studying the GLSM Lagrangian, appropriately modified in the different phases of the theory. We use this to study some aspects of La,b,c spaces and their non-supersymmetric counterparts. 



On tachyons in generic orbifolds of Bbb Cr and gauged linear sigma models

We study some aspects of Gauged Linear Sigma Models corresponding to orbifold singularities of the form r/Γ, for r = 2,3 and Γ = n and n × m. These orbifolds might be tachyonic in general. We compute

On tachyons, gauged linear sigma models, and flip transitions

We study systems of multiple localized closed string tachyons and the phenomena associated with their condensation, in 3/N nonsupersymmetric noncompact orbifold singularities using gauged linear

On Localized Tachyon Condensation in C 2 / Z n and C 3 / Z n

We study some aspects of localized tachyon condensation on non-supersymmetric orbifolds of the form C/Zn and C /Zn. We discuss the gauged linear sigma models for these orbifolds. We show how several

Tilings, Chern-Simons Theories and M2 Branes

A new infinite class of Chern-Simons theories in 2+1 dimensions is presented using brane tilings. The new class reproduces all known cases so far and introduces many new models that are dual to M2

A simple class of N = 3 gauge/gravity duals

We find the gravity duals to an infinite series of = 3 Chern-Simons quiver theories. They are AdS4 × M7 vacua of M-theory, with M7 in a certain class of 3-Sasaki-Einstein manifolds obtained by a
