Systematic F-theory model building with extra U(1)s

Presented by Dr. Sakura SCHAFER-NAMEKI on 25 Jul 2014 from 14:30 to 14:50
Type: Formal SUSY and Strings
Track: Formal SUSY and Strings


I will first review recent advances in F-theory GUT model building, including the construction of globally well-defined compactification geometries, which realize additional U(1) symmetries, for instance to disallow proton decay operators, which are vital in building realistic models. I will then explain how to determine the complete set of possible U(1) charge patterns using Tate's algorithm.
