Abstract

Many instances have recently been found on the intriguing interplay between string landscape and algebraic geometry via the swampland program. In this talk, we will exemplify such an interplay. Specifically, by addressing universal properties of compact elliptic Calabi-Yau (d+1)-folds, we will test out some of the swampland conjectures for all possible effective QFT models of F-theory in (real) D=10-2d dimensions. In particular, several results will be discussed on non-vanishing of specific enumerative invariants, as well as characterization of geometries at infinite distance in the moduli space.

      String, Geometry Seminar at BIMSA | Extremal surfaces in glue-on AdS/TTbar holography

      AbstractTTbar is a solvable irrelevant deformation that leads to interesting properties such as nonlocality. When applied to a CFT, the effects of TTbar can be studied via cutoff and glue-on holography. In this talk, we will first introduce the glue-on geometry, which reveals many interesting features of TTbar deformed CFTs that were previously inaccessible through cutoff holography. We then in...

      Control problem of de-Sitter spacetime in large scale flux landscape

      AbstractIn this talk, I will discuss recent advances in string landscape and swampland. First, I will clarify various corrections in string compactifications and their implications in 4D N=1 SUGRA language. Next, I will focus on warping correction and parameter control issues in achieving de-Sitter space in both KKLT and Large Volume Scenarios. Finally, I will examine the feasibility of these c...
