Spin(7)-manifolds as generalized connected sums and 3d N=1 theories

Abstract:

M-theory on compact eight-manifolds with Spin(7)-holonomy is a framework for geometric engineering of 3d N = 1 gauge theories coupled to gravity. We propose a new construction of such Spin(7)-manifolds, based on a generalized connected sum, where the building blocks are a Calabi-Yau four-fold and a G2-holonomy manifold times a circle, respectively, which both asymptote to a Calabi-Yau three-fold times a cylinder. The generalized connected sum construction is first exemplified for Joyce orbifo...
