Metastable Quivers in String Compactifications

Abstract

We propose a scenario for dynamical supersymmetry breaking in string compactifications based on geometric engineering of quiver gauge theories. In particular we show that the runaway behavior of fractional branes at del Pezzo singularities can be stabilized by a flux superpotential in compact models. Our construction relies on homological mirror symmetry for orientifolds. duiliu@physics.rutgers.edu donagi@math.upenn.edu bflorea@slac.stanford.edu
