Aspects of Four Dimensional N = 2 Field Theory
Xie, Dan (20110711)New four dimensional N = 2 field theories can be engineered from compactifying six dimensional (2, 0) superconformal field theory on a punctured Riemann surface. Hitchin’s equation is defined on this Riemann surface and ...

Higher Derivative Corrections to OPlane Actions
Wang, Zhao (20141117)Higher derivative corrections to effective actions are very important and of great interest in string theory. The aim of this dissertation is to develop a method to constrain the higher derivative corrections to Oplane ... 
Higher Derivative Dbrane Couplings
Guo, Guangyu (20121019)This dissertation covers two different but related topics: the construction of consistent models in type IIB and heterotic string theories, and the higher derivative couplings for Dbrane action, which will enable us to ...

The Local Equivalence Problem for 7dimensional, 2nondegenerate CR Manifolds whose Cubic Form is of Conformal Unitary Type
Porter, Curtis Wade (20160603)We apply E. Cartan’s method of equivalence to classify 7dimensional, 2nondegenerate CR manifolds M up to local CR equivalence in the case that the cubic form of M satisfies a certain symmetry property with respect to the ...
