Building the standard model on a D3-brane

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In this talk, I will motivate and apply a bottom-up approach to string phenomenology, which aims to construct the Standard Model as a decoupled world-volume theory on a D3-brane. I describe a concrete proposal for such a construction, obtained in a recent paper with Martijn Wijnholt, based on a single probe D3-brane on a partial resolution of a del Pezzo 8 singularity.
