KachruKalloshLindeTriveditype models with modulimixing superpotential
Abstract
We study KKLT type models with modulimixing superpotential. In several string models, gauge kinetic functions are written as linear combinations of two or more moduli fields. Their gluino condensation generates modulimixing superpotential. We assume one of moduli fields is frozen already around the string scale. It is found that Kaehler modulus can be stabilized at a realistic value without tuning 3form fluxes because of gluino condensation on (non)magnetized Dbrane. Furthermore, we do not need to highly tune parameters in order to realize a weak gauge coupling and a large hierarchy between the gravitino mass and the Planck scale, when there exists nonperturbative effects on D3brane. SUSY breaking patterns in our models have a rich structure. Also, some of our models have cosmologically important implications, e.g., on the overshooting problem and the destabilization problem due to finite temperature effects as well as the gravitino problem and the moduli problem.

The physics of moduli fields is examined in the scenario where the gravitino is relatively heavy with mass of order 10 TeV, which is favored in view of the severe gravitino problem. The form of the moduli superpotential is shown to be determined, if one imposes a phenomenological requirement that no physical CP phase arise in gaugino masses from conformal anomaly mediation. This bottomup approach allows only two types of superpotential, each of which can have its origins in a fundamental underlying theory such as superstring. One superpotential is the sum of an exponential and a constant, which is identicalmore »

Nonperturbative moduli superpotential with positive exponents
We study nonperturbative moduli superpotentials with positive exponents, i.e. the form like Ae{sup aT} with a positive constant a and the modulus T. These effects can be generated, e.g., by Dbranes which have negative RamondRamond charge of the lowerdimensional Dbrane. The scalar potentials including such terms have quite a rich structure. There are several local minima with different potential energies and a high barrier, whose height is of O(M{sub p}{sup 4}). We discuss their implications from the viewpoints of cosmology and particle phenomenology, e.g. the realization of inflation models, avoiding the overshooting problem. This type of potential would be usefulmore »

Open string moduli in KachruKalloshLindeTrivedi compactifications
In the KachruKalloshLindeTrivedi (KKLT) deSitter construction one introduces an antiD3brane that breaks the supersymmetry and leads to a positive cosmological constant. In this paper we investigate the open string moduli associated with this antiD3brane, corresponding to its position on the S{sup 3} at the tip of the deformed conifold. We show that in the KKLT construction these moduli are very light, and we suggest a possible way to give these moduli a large mass by putting orientifold planes in the KKLT ''throat.''. 
Moduli fixing and T duality in type II brane gas models
We consider a compactification with a sixdimensional torus in the type II brane gas models. We show that the dilaton and the scale of each cycle of the internal space are fixed in the presence of NS5branes and KaluzaKlein monopoles as well as Dbranes with the gauge fields. We can construct various models that lead to fixed moduli by using Tduality transformations.
