Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Algebraic geometry and flux vacua
4 May 2007 13:00 in CM221
I will describe a new and efficient method of analysing four dimensional
effective supergravities which descend from flux compactification.
The issue of finding vacua of such models, which is central to string
phenomenology, may be translated into a problem in algebraic geometry. This leads to a completely algorithmic procedure for finding all of the
vacua of such systems.
In particular I will describe how non-perturbative effects, such as
gaugino condensation, may be accommodated in this algorithm even though they contribute non-algebraically to the system.
