Vector Bundles and Moduli Stabilization in Heterotic Theories

Wednesday 27th June 2012 - 14:35 to 15:10
INI Seminar Room 1
I will discuss recent work on moduli stabilization without Neveu-Schwarz three-form flux in Calabi-Yau compactifications of Heterotic M-theory. In particular, I discuss a systematic approach to stabilizing the complex structure moduli in heterotic vacua and how the holomorphic deformations of the gauge bundle can naturally lead to the consideration of multiple Calabi-Yau threefolds, connected by geometric transitions.
