# Supergravity on R4 x S1/Z2 and singular Calabi-Yaus

@article{McReynolds2008SupergravityOR, title={Supergravity on R4 x S1/Z2 and singular Calabi-Yaus}, author={Sean McReynolds}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2008} }

We discuss the moduli space singularities that are generally present in five-dimensional vector-coupled supergravity on a spactime of the form R4 x S1/Z2, with vector fields surviving on the Z2 fixed planes. The framework of supergravity is necessarily ambiguous when it comes to the non-singular embedding theory, so we focus on those models coming from Calabi-Yau three-folds with wrapped membranes.

We study five-dimensional Kasner cosmologies in a time-dependent Calabi–Yau compactification of M-theory undergoing a flop transition. The dynamics of the additional states, which become massless at…

We construct a family of five-dimensional gauged supergravity actions which describe flop transitions of M-theory compactified on Calabi-Yau threefolds. While the vector multiplet sector can be…

M-theory effects prevent five-dimensional domain-wall and black-hole solutions from developing curvature singularities. While so far this analysis has been performed for particular models, we now…

Compactifications of M-theory on singular manifolds contain additional charged massless states descending from M-branes wrapped on vanishing cycles. We construct the first explicit example of a…
