Intermediate scales of symmetry breaking in CalabiYau models
We discuss the generation of large intermediate scales of symmetry breaking in grand unification models suggested by the heterotic string. We analyze on dimensional grounds a particular scenario where one flat direction in the effective potential defines two different scales of gaugesymmetry breaking at very high energies ({approx}10{sup 15} GeV). This mechanism implies the presence of one light ({similar to}1 TeV) nonchiral neutrino. The size of the observable lowenergy effects seems, however, quite model dependent. 
Comments on hierarchical symmetry breaking in effective theory of CalabiYau compactified superstring
The authors of this paper reexamine the possibility of large hierarchical symmetry breaking in the effective field theory of CalabiYau compactified superstring. The authors introduce the general superpotential containing the allowed moduli couplings. In certain manifolds oneloop radiative correction gives the nontrivial minimum and that solution suggests the possibility of large hierarchical symmetry breaking. To realize such a large hierarchy, it seems to require that 27(h{sup 2,1} + h{sup 1,1}) {gt} 48 {pi}{sup 2} and H{sup 1} (EndT) chiral superfields should have certain types of couplings to moduli fields. 
Noncommutative gauge theory and symmetry breaking in matrix models
We show how the fields and particles of the standard model can be naturally realized in noncommutative gauge theory. Starting with a YangMills matrix model in more than four dimensions, an SU(n) gauge theory on a MoyalWeyl space arises with all matter and fields in the adjoint of the gauge group. We show how this gauge symmetry can be broken spontaneously down to SU(3){sub c}xSU(2){sub L}xU(1){sub Q}[resp. SU(3){sub c}xU(1){sub Q}], which couples appropriately to all fields in the standard model. An additional U(1){sub B} gauge group arises which is anomalous at low energies, while the traceU(1) sector is understood inmore » 
Symmetryadapted perturbation theory with KohnSham orbitals using nonempirically tuned, longrangecorrected density functionals
The performance of secondorder symmetryadapted perturbation theory (SAPT) calculations using KohnSham (KS) orbitals is evaluated against benchmark results for intermolecular interactions. Unlike previous studies of this “SAPT(KS)” methodology, the present study uses nonempirically tuned longrange corrected (LRC) functionals for the monomers. The proper v{sub xc} (r)→0 asymptotic limit is achieved by tuning the range separation parameter in order to satisfy the condition that the highest occupied KS energy level equals minus the molecule's ionization energy, for each monomer unit. Tests for He{sub 2}, Ne{sub 2}, and the S22 and S66 data sets reveal that this condition is important for accuratemore »
