Carlos Shahbazi holds degrees in physics (Complutense University) and mathematics (UNED) and completed his PhD at the Institute for Theoretical Physics UAM-CSIC after being a long term visitor at the Stanford Institute for Theoretical Physics. Following a period at the Institut de Physique Théorique CEA-Saclay currently he is a Humboldt fellow at the Mathematics Department of Hamburg University

The concept of moduli space is of utmost relevance in theoretical physics and mathematics, especially in geometry, topology and string theory. A moduli space is, roughly speaking, a space that classifies a given class of objects modulo an equivalence […]

Reference contains the following statement:
“Ashtekar’s formulation of general relativity taught us to think of gravitational theories as theories of connections, on a bare manifold with no metric structure. […] The idea that general relativity has its deepest formulation […]

The purpose of this note is to introduce the reader to the notion of Lipschitz structure and its potential applications to the spin geometry required to globally formulate string theory and supergravity on a differentiable manifold.
Spinors are a crucial […]

In the previous articles (I, II), we have characterized the simplest class of supersymmetric heterotic compactification backgrounds. In particular, we have finished the second article with the following result:
There is a class of admissible Heterotic internal […]

This is the second of the series of articles on the geometry of String Theory compactifications. Before reading this note, the interested reader may want to read the first note, where the concept of compactification background is introduced […]

This is first of a series of notes on the geometry of String Theory compactifications. The space-time in String Theory is often described by means of a mathematical object called manifold . Manifolds are very important objects from the […]
