(2, 2)-Superconformal field theories near orbifold points

Journal Article (Journal Article)

A thorough analysis of the "blowing-up" modes of the ℤ6 based on the Lie algebra A2⊕D4 is presented. We discover that the descriptions of these modes in the language of superconformal field theory and Calabi-Yau compactification are not immediately in agreement. A solution to this apparent inconsistency is offered which leads to the possibility of differentiably distinct Calabi-Yau manifolds giving isomorphic physics. © 1990 Springer-Verlag.
