Necessary conditions on Calabi-Yau manifolds for large volume vacua

Gray, J., He, Y., Jejjala, V. , Jurke, B., Nelson, B. D. & Simon, J. (2012). Necessary conditions on Calabi-Yau manifolds for large volume vacua. Physical Review D, 86(10), article number 101901. doi: 10.1103/physrevd.86.101901


We describe an efficient, construction independent, algorithmic test to determine whether Calabi-Yau threefolds admit a structure compatible with the large volume moduli stabilization scenario of type IIB superstring theory. Using the algorithm, we scan complete intersection and toric hypersurface Calabi-Yau threefolds with 2≤h1,1≤4 and deduce that 418 among 4434 manifolds have a large volume limit with a single large four-cycle. We describe major extensions to this survey, which are currently underway.
