On moduli stabilisation and cosmology in type IIB flux compactifications

Abstract:

This Thesis studies some aspects of string compactifications with particular em- phasis on moduli stabilisation and cosmology.

In Chapter 1 I motivate the study of string compactifications as a way to build on the successes of the Standard Model of Particle Physics and of the theory of General Relativity.

Chapter 2 constitutes an overview of the technical background necessary for the study of flux compactifications. I sketch how the desire to obtain a supersymmet- ric theory ...
