Metastable Vacua and Complex Deformations

We use the non-normalizable complex deformations to describe the stringy realizations of the metastable vacua in N = 1, SU(N_c) SUSY theories with N_f > N_c fundamental flavors. The consideration of the non-normalizable deformations requires a modified Toric duality. The new approach has to consider the tachyon condensation between pairs of wrapped D5 branes and anti D5 branes and the corresponding rearranging of the cycles in the geometry.
