The moduli of reducible vector bundles

He, Y., Ovrut, B. A. & Reinbacher, R. (2004). The moduli of reducible vector bundles. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2004(03), 043 - 043. doi: 10.1088/1126-6708/2004/03/043


A procedure for computing the dimensions of the moduli spaces of reducible, holomorphic vector bundles on elliptically fibered Calabi-Yau threefolds X is presented. This procedure is applied to poly-stable rank n+m bundles of the form V + pi* M, where V is a stable vector bundle with structure group SU(n) on X and M is a stable vector bundle with structure group SU(m) on the base surface B of X. Such bundles arise from small instanton transitions involving five-branes wrapped on fibers of the elliptic fibration. The structure and physical meaning of these transitions are discussed.
