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

@article{Sarkar2006OnTI, title={On tachyons in generic orbifolds of Bbb Cr and gauged linear sigma models}, author={Tapobrata Sarkar}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2006}, volume={2007}, pages={025-025} }

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 expressions for the multi parameter sigma model Lagrangians for these orbifolds, in terms of their toric geometry data. Using this, we analyze some aspects of the phases of generic orbifolds of r.
