  • Dark energy and string theory 

    Berglund, Per; Hubsch, Tristan; Minic, Djordje (2019-11-10)
    A radiatively stable de Sitter spacetime is constructed by considering an intrinsically non-commutative and generalized-geometric formulation of string theory, which is related to a family of F-theory models endowed with ...

    Drozdetski, Aleksander V.; Mukhopadhyay, Abhishek; Onufriev, Alexey V. (2019-11-29)
    The strong bending of polymers is poorly understood. We propose a general quantitative framework of polymer bending that includes both the weak and strong bending regimes on the same footing, based on a single general ...
