Abstract We investigate the swampland distance conjecture (SDC) in the complex moduli space of type II compactifications on one-parameter Calabi-Yau threefolds. This class of manifolds contains hundreds of examples and, in particular, a subset of 14 geometries with hypergeometric differential Picard-Fuchs operators. Of the four principal types of singularities that can occur — specified by their limiting mixed Hodge structure — only the K-points and the large radius points (or more generally… 
Refined swampland distance conjecture and exotic hybrid Calabi-Yaus
A bstractWe test the refined swampland distance conjecture in the Kähler moduli space of exotic one-parameter Calabi-Yaus. We focus on examples with pseudo-hybrid points. These points, whose
Moduli-dependent KK towers and the swampland distance conjecture on the quintic Calabi-Yau manifold
We use numerical methods to obtain moduli-dependent Calabi–Yau metrics and from them the moduli-dependent massive tower of Kaluza–Klein states for the one-parameter family of quintic Calabi–Yau
Modular curves and the refined distance conjecture
Abstract We test the refined distance conjecture in the vector multiplet moduli space of 4D $$ \mathcal{N} $$ N = 2 compactifications of the type IIA string that admit a dual heterotic
Sphere Partition Function of Calabi–Yau GLSMs
The sphere partition function of Calabi–Yau gauged linear sigma models (GLSMs) has been shown to compute the exact Kähler potential of the Kähler moduli space of a Calabi–Yau. We propose a universal
Modeling General Asymptotic Calabi-Yau Periods
In the quests to uncovering the fundamental structures that underlie some of the asymptotic Swampland conjectures we initiate the general study of asymptotic period vectors of CalabiYau manifolds.
Emergent strings from infinite distance limits
Abstract As a refinement of the Swampland Distance Conjecture, we propose that a quantum gravitational theory in an infinite distance limit of its moduli space either decompactifies, or reduces to
Elliptic K3 Surfaces at Infinite Complex Structure and their Refined Kulikov models
Motivated by the Swampland Distance and the Emergent String Conjecture of Quantum Gravity, we analyse the infinite distance degenerations in the complex structure moduli space of elliptic K3
State counting on fibered CY 3-folds and the non-Abelian weak gravity conjecture
Abstract We extend the dictionary between the BPS spectrum of Heterotic strings and the one of F-/M-theory compactifications on K3 fibered Calabi-Yau 3-folds to cases with higher rank non-Abelian
Physics of infinite complex structure limits in eight dimensions
Abstract We investigate infinite distance limits in the complex structure moduli space of F-theory compactified on K3 to eight dimensions. While this is among the simplest possible arenas to test
Topological strings on genus one fibered Calabi-Yau 3-folds and string dualities
Abstract We calculate the generating functions of BPS indices using their modular properties in Type II and M-theory compactifications on compact genus one fibered CY 3-folds with singular fibers


The refined Swampland Distance Conjecture in Calabi-Yau moduli spaces
A bstractThe Swampland Distance Conjecture claims that effective theories derived from a consistent theory of quantum gravity only have a finite range of validity. This will imply drastic

On the Geometry of the String Landscape and the Swampland
The classical Weil-Petersson metric on the Teichmuller space of compact Riemann surfaces is a Kahler metric, which is complete only in the case of elliptic curves [Wo]. It has a natural
Stable pairs and BPS invariants
We define the BPS invariants of Gopakumar-Vafa in the case of irreducible curve classes on Calabi-Yau 3-folds. The main tools are the theory of stable pairs in the derived category and Behrend's
Topological String Theory on Compact Calabi–Yau: Modularity and Boundary Conditions
The topological string partition function Z(λ,t,t) =exp(λ2 g-2 Fg(t, t)) is calculated on a compact Calabi–Yau M. The Fg(t, t) fulfil the holomorphic anomaly equations, which imply that ψ=Z
