Compactifications of deformed conifolds, branes and the geometry of qubits $\mathfrak S
We present three families of exact, cohomogeneityone Einstein metrics in (2n + 2) dimensions, which are generalizations of the Stenzel construction of Ricciflat metrics to those with a positive cosmological constant. The first family of solutions are FubiniStudy metrics on the complex projective spaces CP ^{n+1}, written in a Stenzel form, whose principal orbits are the Stiefel manifolds V _{2}($$\mathbb R^{2+3}$$) = SO(n+2)/SO(n) divided by Z _{2}. The second family are also EinsteinKahler metrics, now on the Grassmannian manifolds G _{2}(R ^{n+3}) = SO(n+3)/((SO(n+1)×SO(2)), whose principal orbits are the Stiefel manifolds V _{2}($$\mathbb R^{2+3}$$) (with no Z _{2} factoring in this case). Furthermore, the third family are Einstein metrics on the product manifolds S ^{n+1} × S ^{n+1}, and are Kahler only for n = 1. Some of these metrics are believed to play a role in studies of consistent string theory compactifications and in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence. Also, we elaborate on the geometric approach to quantum mechanics based on the Kahler geometry of FubiniStudy metrics on $$\mathbb CP^{n+1}$$, and we apply the formalism to study the quantum entanglement of qubits.
