STRINGVACUA: A Mathematica Package for Studying Vacuum Configurations in String Phenomenology

Gray, J., He, Y., Ilderton, A. and Lukas, A. (2009). STRINGVACUA: A Mathematica Package for Studying Vacuum Configurations in String Phenomenology. Computer Physics Communications Package, 180(1), pp. 107-119. doi: 10.1016/j.cpc.2008.08.009

Abstract

We give a simple tutorial introduction to the Mathematica package STRINGVACUA, which is designed to find vacua of string-derived or inspired four-dimensional N=1 supergravities. The package uses powerful algebro-geometric methods, as implemented in the free computer algebra system Singular, but requires no knowledge of the mathematics upon which it is based. A series of easy-to-use Mathematica modules are provided which can be used both in string theory and in more general applications requiring fast polynomial computations. The use of these modules is illustrated throughout with simple examples.
