Heterotic string models on smooth Calabi-Yau threefolds

Abstract:

This thesis contributes with a number of topics to the subject of string compactifications, especially in the instance of the E8 × E8 heterotic string theory compactified on smooth Calabi-Yau threefolds.

In the first half of the work, I discuss the Hodge plot associated with Calabi-Yau threefolds that are hypersurfaces in toric varieties. The intricate structure of this plot is explained by the existence of certain webs of elliptic-K3...
