Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: New aspects of geometrical transitions

Presented by Radu Tatar (Liverpool),

28 October 2005 00:00 in CM221

"Geometrical transitions are powerful connections between String Theory compactifications and Effective Field Theories. I shall argue that a consistent picture of the transitions involves using local approaches in type IIB strings and their lift to F-theory SUSY compactifications. The map between field theory and geometrical superpotentials imply the use of torsional manifolds in type IIA strings and M theory. Our solutions are more general than the ones studied recently in the literature. I also discuss a proposal for a heterotic string geometric transitions and argue that this should exist."
