We analyze the structure of the standard model coupled to gravity with spatial dimensions compactified on a three-torus. We find that there are no stable one-dimensional vacua at zero temperature, although there does exist an unstable vacuum for a particular set of Dirac neutrino masses.

Weak gravity conjecture, multiple point principle and the standard model landscape
The requirement for an ultraviolet completable theory to be well-behaved upon compactification has been suggested as a guiding principle for distinguishing the landscape from the swampland. MotivatedExpand
Particle creation in a toroidal universe
We calculate the particle production rate in an expanding universe with a three-torus topology. We discuss also the complete evolution of the size of such a universe. The energy density of particlesExpand

We investigate the global spacetime structure of torus de Sitter universe, which is exact de Sitter space with torus identification based on the flat chart. We show that past incomplete nullExpand
Constraining neutrino masses, the cosmological constant and BSM physics from the weak gravity conjecture
A bstractIt is known that there are AdS vacua obtained from compactifying the SM to 2 or 3 dimensions. The existence of such vacua depends on the value of neutrino masses through the Casimir effect.Expand

In this addendum we complement the remarks made in ref[1] constraining the value of the cosmological constant $\Lambda_4$ in terms of neutrino masses. Those were based on a sharpened version of theExpand
Weighing the vacuum energy
We discuss the weight of vacuum energy in various contexts. First, we compute the vacuum energy for flat spacetimes of the form $\mathbb{T}^3 \times \mathbb{R}$, where $\mathbb{T}^3$ stands for aExpand


Finite temperature structure of the compactified standard model
We analyze the finite temperature structure of the standard model coupled to gravity with one and two dimensions compactified (on a circle and a torus). We find that finite temperature effects washExpand
Standard model vacua for two-dimensional compactifications
We examine the structure of lower-dimensional standard model vacua for two-dimensional compactifications (on a 2D torus and on a 2D sphere). In the case of the torus we find a new standard modelExpand

Abstract We examine, at the one-loop level, the effects of quantized fermion and boson fields in a five-dimensional Kaluza-Klein universe. It is shown that massive fermions, as well as massiveExpand

Abstract We study a supersymmetric field theory in six dimensions compactified on the orbifold T 2 / Z 2 with two Wilson lines. After supersymmetry breaking, the Casimir energy fixes the shape moduliExpand

We consider the fundamental region for the space of spatial metrics over ({ital d}{minus}1)-dimensional tori in order to normalize the universal wave function.
Quantum horizons of the standard model landscape
The long-distance effective field theory of our Universe—the Standard Model coupled to gravity—has a unique 4D vacuum, but we show that it also has a landscape of lower-dimensional vacua, with theExpand
Dynamical compactification from de Sitter space
We show that D-dimensional de Sitter space is unstable to the nucleation of non-singular geometries containing spacetime regions with different numbers of macroscopic dimensions, leading to aExpand
