The Standard Model data suggests that the quantum gravity vacuum should accommodate two pivotal ingredients. The existence of three chiral generations and their embedding in chiral 16 SO(10) representations. The Z2XZ2 orbifolds are examples of perturbative heterotic string vacua that yield these properties. The exploration of these models in the nonperturbative framework of M-theory is discussed. A common prediction of these contructions is the existence of super-heavy meta-stable states due to…

Ju n 20 04 Vacuum Stability in Heterotic M-Theory

The problem of the stabilization of moduli is discussed within the context of compactified strongly coupled heterotic string theory. It is shown that all geometric, vector bundle and five-brane

Raising anti de Sitter vacua to de Sitter vacua in heterotic M theory

We explore the possibility of obtaining de Sitter vacua in strongly coupled heterotic models by adding various corrections to the supergravity potential energy. We show that, in a generic

Z(2)x Z(2)heterotic orbifold models of non factorisable six dimensional toroidal manifolds

We discuss heterotic strings on 2 × 2 orbifolds of non factorisable six-tori. Although the number of fixed tori is reduced as compared to the factorisable case, Wilson lines are still needed for the
