  • Geometric constraints in dual F-theory and heterotic string compactifications 

    Anderson, Lara B.; Taylor, Washington (Springer, 2014-08-05)
    We systematically analyze a broad class of dual heterotic and F-theory models that give four-dimensional supergravity theories, and compare the geometric constraints on the two sides of the duality. Specifically, we give ...
  • T-branes and geometry 

    Anderson, Lara B.; Heckman, Jonathan J.; Katz, Sheldon (Springer, 2014-05-19)
    T-branes are a non-abelian generalization of intersecting branes in which the matrix of normal deformations is nilpotent along some subspace. In this paper we study the geometric remnant of this open string data for ...
  • Notes on nonabelian (0,2) theories and dualities 

    Jia, Bei; Sharpe, Eric; Wu, Ruoxu (Springer, 2014-08-05)
    In this paper we explore basic aspects of nonabelian (0,2) GLSMs in two dimensions for unitary gauge groups, an arena that until recently has largely been unexplored. We begin by discussing general aspects of (0,2) theories, ...
  • Algebroids, heterotic moduli spaces and the Strominger system 

    Anderson, Lara B.; Gray, James; Sharpe, Eric (Springer, 2014-07-08)
    In this paper we study compactifications of heterotic string theory on manifolds satisfying the partial derivative(partial derivative) over bar -lemma. We consider the Strominger system description of the low energy ...
  • Quantifying the sensitivity of oscillation experiments to the neutrino mass ordering 

    Blennow, Mattias; Coloma, Pilar; Huber, Patrick; Schwetz, Thomas (Springer, 2014-03-05)
    Determining the type of the neutrino mass ordering ( normal versus inverted) is one of the most important open questions in neutrino physics. In this paper we clarify the statistical interpretation of sensitivity calculations ...
  • Topological invariants and fibration structure of complete intersection Calabi-Yau four-folds 

    Gray, James; Haupt, Alexander S.; Lukas, Andre (Springer, 2014-09-17)
    We investigate the mathematical properties of the class of Calabi-Yau four-folds recently found in ref. [1]. This class consists of 921,497 configuration matrices which correspond to manifolds that are described as complete ...
