General U(1)×U(1) Ftheory compactifications and beyond: geometry of unHiggsings and novel matter structure
Abstract
We construct the general form of an Ftheory compactification with two U(1) factors based on a general elliptically fibered CalabiYau manifold with MordellWeil group of rank two. This construction produces broad classes of models with diverse matter spectra, including many that are not realized in earlier Ftheory constructions with U(1)×U(1) gauge symmetry. Generic U(1)×U(1) models can be related to a Higgsed nonAbelian model with gauge group SU(2)×SU(2)×SU(3), SU(2)^{3}×SU(3), or a subgroup thereof. The nonlocal horizontal divisors of the MordellWeil group are replaced with local vertical divisors associated with the Cartan generators of nonAbelian gauge groups from Kodaira singularities. We give a global resolution of codimension two singularities of the Abelian model; we identify the full anomaly free matter content, and match it to the unHiggsed nonAbelian model. The nonAbelian Weierstrass model exhibits a new algebraic description of the singularities in the fibration that results in the first explicit construction of matter in the symmetric representation of SU(3). This matter is realized on double point singularities of the discriminant locus. In conclusion, the construction suggests a generalization to U(1) ^{k} factors with k > 2, which can be studied by Higgsing theories with larger nonAbelian gauge groups.
