Geometric description of the Standard Model

Presented by Prof. Choi KANG-SIN on 22 Jul 2014 from 14:30 to 14:50
Type: Formal SUSY and Strings
Track: Formal SUSY and Strings


The Standard Model is gauge theory based on a particular gauge group and matter fields transforming under it. One possible explanation of its origin is given by string theory. In particular, F-theory describes gauge theory in geometric way and gives us good explanation on Grand Unified structure. Although many Grand Unification based on simple groups are suggested for simplicity, without intermediate unification, we want to directly obtain the Standard Model at the unification scale.
