Scanning for Swiss Cheese geometries

INI Seminar Room 2
Moduli stabilization in the Large Volume Scenario requires a specific kind of six-dimensional Calabi-Yau geometry for the compactification procedure, which is being referred to as "Swiss Cheese" due to the presence of certain holes for instanton wrappings. Only a handful of such manifolds are known explicitly. I will give an overview of the Large Volume Scenario and present recent progress on a general scan of the Calabi-Yau threefold landscape for the Swiss Cheese property.
