On the vacuum structure of F-theory compactifications
- Dr. Hajime OTSUKA
We discuss moduli stabilization of the F-theory compactified on elliptically fibered Calabi-Yau fourfolds. We turn on appropriate G-fluxes to stabilize all the complex structure moduli fields, corresponding to the open and closed string moduli in the type IIB limit. It is found that they can be stabilized at the Minkowski or de Sitter minimum. We also discuss the swampland conjecture in the global F-theory context.
