F-theory model building
In this thesis we considered non-Abelian monodromy groups in F-theory, based on SU(5) GUTs, with models presented using the V4, A4, and D4 monodromy actions. The role of these symmetries in generating the observed mixing patterns of neutrinos has been considered in the cases of A4 and D4 monodromy. An older model based on E6 is also considered as a candidate model to explain the recent LHC diphoton excess. R-parity violating processes in F-theory have also been considered, and it has been shown that such effects should be considered generic in F-theory without an ad hoc R-parity. The strengths of such coupling are discussed in the context of local F-theory Yukawa computations.

Abstract

In this thesis we considered non-Abelian monodromy groups in F-theory, based on SU(5) GUTs, with models presented using the V4, A4, and D4 monodromy actions. The role of these symmetries in generating the observed mixing patterns of neutrinos has been considered in the cases of A4 and D4 monodromy. An older model based on E6 is also considered as a candidate model to explain the recent LHC diphoton excess. R-parity violating processes in F-theory have also been considered, and it has been shown that such effects should be considered generic in F-theory without an ad hoc R-parity. The strengths of such coupling are discussed in the context of local F-theory Yukawa computations.
