Heterotic string compactification and quiver gauge theory on toric geometry

Abstract:

This thesis is composed of papers in two areas: heterotic string model building on Calabi-Yau manifolds, and bipartite field theory with applications to brane tilings. However, the two streams share a common topic - string model building on toric geometry. Toric variety appears as both the ambient space for constructing Calabi- Yau hyper-surface, and the moduli space of D-brane configurations.

We study heterotic model building on 16 specific Calabi-Yau (CY) manifolds as hypersu...
