• The deconstruction of orbifold fixed points in heterotic M-theory 

      Claussen, Jacob Cole; 0000-0002-1529-1774 (2016-08)
      The compactification of E8 X E8 heterotic string theory on orbifolds of the form T6=ZN produces a 4D spectrum of untwisted states and twisted states. Unlike the untwisted states, the twisted states are confined to the fixed ...
    • Tinkertoys for Gaiotto duality 

      Chacaltana Alarcon, Oscar Chacaltana (2011-08)
      We describe a procedure for classifying 4D N=2 superconformal theories of the type introduced by Davide Gaiotto. Any punctured curve, C, on which the 6D (2,0) SCFT is compactified, may be decomposed into 3-punctured spheres, ...
