Quiver structure of heterotic moduli

He, Y. & Lee, S-J. (2012). Quiver structure of heterotic moduli. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2012(11), 119. doi: 10.1007/JHEP11(2012)119


We analyse the vector bundle moduli arising from generic heterotic compactifications from the point of view of quiver representations. Phenomena such as stability walls, crossing between chambers of supersymmetry, splitting of non-Abelian bundles and dynamic generation of D-terms are succinctly encoded into finite quivers. By studying the Poincaré polynomial of the quiver moduli space using the Reineke formula, we can learn about such useful concepts as Donaldson-Thomas invariants, instanton transitions and supersymmetry breaking.
