The Standard Model from string theory D-branes
  KTH/Nordita/SU seminar in Theoretical Physics [before December 2013]

Wednesday 20 February 2008
from 11:00 to 12:00
at FA31
Speaker : Angel Uranga (Madrid)
Abstract : I will review the recent attempts to embed the Standard Model of Particle Physics (and supersymmetric extensions thereof) in string theory, using D-branes. The gauge interactions and elementary fermions arise as different kinds of open strings stretched between the D-branes in the configurations. I will discuss the main phenomenological properties of such string models, and how close to the actual Standard Model they get.
