Simons Center Program on String Compactification

Simons Center Program on String Compactification Spring 2012 Program Description. In 1985, it was shown by Candelas et al that compactification of the heterotic string on a Calabi-Yau manifold could lead to models similar to the Standard Model of particle physics, and `beyond the Standard Model’ extensions such as grand unification and supersymmetry. Over the […]
