An algorithmic approach to string phenomenology

He, Y. (2010). An algorithmic approach to string phenomenology. Modern Physics Letters A, 25(2), 79. doi: 10.1142/S0217732310032731


We review the recent programme undertaken to construct, systematically and algorithmically, large classes of heterotic vacua, as well as the search for the MSSM therein. Specifically, we outline the monad construction of vector bundles over complete intersection Calabi–Yau threefolds, their classification, stability, equivariant cohomology and subsequent relevance to string phenomenology. It is hoped that this top–down algorithmic approach will isolate special corners in the heterotic landscape.
