Abstract We establish an orientifold Calabi-Yau threefold database for h1,1(X) ≤ 6 by considering non-trivial ℤ2 divisor exchange involutions, using a toric Calabi-Yau database (www.rossealtman.com/tcy). We first determine the topology for each individual divisor (Hodge diamond), then identify and classify the proper involutions which are globally consistent across all disjoint phases of the Kähler cone for each unique geometry. Each of the proper involutions will result in an orientifold… 

Moduli stabilization in type IIB orientifolds at $h^{2,1}=50$

We study moduli stabilization in Calabi-Yau orientifold compactifications of type IIB string theory with O3- and O7-planes. We consider a Calabi-Yau three-fold with Hodge number h 2 , 1 = 50 and

On K3-fibred LARGE Volume Scenario with de Sitter vacua from anti-D3-branes

: In the context of type IIB superstring compactifications on K3-fibred (weak) Swiss-cheese Calabi Yau (CY) orientifolds, we consider the realisation of de Sitter vacua obtained through the

Applying machine learning to the Calabi-Yau orientifolds with string vacua

We use machine learning technique to search the polytope which can result in an orientifold Calabi-Yau hypersurface and the “naive Type IIB string vacua”. We show that neural networks can be trained

We elaborate on recent results regarding the self-consistency of de Sitter vacua in the LARGE-volume scenario of type IIB string theory. In particular, we analyze to what extent the control over

Classifying divisor topologies for string phenomenology

In this article we present a pheno-inspired classification for the divisor topologies of the favorable Calabi Yau (CY) threefolds with 1 ≤ h 1 , 1 ( CY ) ≤ 5 arising from the four-dimensional reflexive

Machine Learning on generalized Complete Intersection Calabi-Yau Manifolds

The trained models can achieve a 97% precision in predicting new gCICY which is generated difierently from those used for training and testing, showing that machine learning could be an effective method to classify and generate new g CICY.

From the String Landscape to the Mathematical Landscape: a Machine-Learning Outlook

Some experiments on how AI helps with conjecture formulation, pattern recognition are highlighted, with this paradigm as a model for human intuition complementary to and in contrast with the more formalistic approach of automated theorem proving.



A landscape of orientifold vacua

We present a vast landscape of O3/O7 orientifolds that descends from the famous set of complete intersection Calabi-Yau threefolds (CICY). We give distributions of topological data relevant for

Instanton superpotentials, Calabi-Yau geometry, and fibrations

In this paper we explore contributions to non-perturbative superpotentials arising from instantons wrapping effective divisors in smooth Calabi-Yau four-folds. We concentrate on the case of manifolds

Systematics of axion inflation in Calabi-Yau hypersurfaces

A bstractWe initiate a comprehensive survey of axion inflation in compactifications of type IIB string theory on Calabi-Yau hypersurfaces in toric varieties. For every threefold with h1,1 ≤ 4 in the

Moduli stabilisation for chiral global models

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

We analyze freely-acting discrete symmetries of Calabi–Yau three-folds defined as hypersurfaces in ambient toric four-folds. An algorithm that allows the systematic classification of such symmetries

Calabi–Yau generalized complete intersections and aspects of cohomology of sheaves

We consider generalized complete intersection manifolds in the product space of projective spaces, and work out useful aspects pertaining to the cohomology of sheaves over them. First, we present and
