In this letter we analyze the relative scales for the GUT and twin sectors in the F-theory model discussed in Ref. \cite{Clemens-3}. There are a number of volume moduli in the model. The volume of the GUT surface in the visible sector {[}sector(1){]} (with the Wilson line GUT breaking) defines the GUT scale $M_{GUT}\sim2\times10^{16}~GeV$ as the unification scale with precise gauge coupling unification of $SU(3)\times SU(2)\times U(1)_{Y}$. We choose $\alpha_{GUT}^{-1}\sim24$. We are then free…

Heterotic-F-theory duality with Wilson line symmetry-breaking

- Physics, Mathematics
- 2019

We begin with an $E_{8}\times E_{8}$ Heterotic model broken to an $SU(5)_{gauge}$ and a mirror $SU(5)_{gauge}$, where one $SU(5)$ and its spectrum is identified as the visible sector while the other…

GUTs and exceptional branes in F-theory — II. Experimental predictions

- Physics
- 2008

We consider realizations of GUT models in F-theory. Adopting a bottom up approach, the assumption that the dynamics of the GUT model can in principle decouple from Planck scale physics leads to a…

Moduli stabilization and supersymmetry breaking in heterotic orbifold string models

In this paper, we discuss the issues of supersymmetry breaking and moduli stabilization within the context of E 8 ⊗ E 8 heterotic orbifold constructions and, in particular, we focus on the class of…

Yukawa Couplings in F-theory and Non-Commutative Geometry

- Mathematics, Physics

Abstract We demonstrate electric-magnetic duality in N = 1 supersymmetric non-Abelian gauge theories in four dimensions by presenting two different gauge theories (different gauge groups and quark…

Numerical Kähler-Einstein Metric on the Third del Pezzo
