In this thesis we present phenomenological consequences of the modern nonperturbative regimes of String Theory, M- and F-Theory.

The Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model is derived from F-Theory compactifications exhibiting a spectral cover equation with Klein monodromy and a geometric parity that endows the spectrum with an effective matter parity. A dedicated and systematic study on R-Parity violating couplings in F-Theory is also presented, where we find these couplings to be generic, and we compute their magnitudes.

Abstract

In this thesis we present phenomenological consequences of the modern nonperturbative regimes of String Theory, M- and F-Theory. The origins of SO(10) from M-Theory on G2 manifolds are discussed, accompanied by a detailed discussion on a rank-breaking mechanism and consequences for neutrino masses. The Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model is derived from F-Theory compactifications exhibiting a spectral cover equation with Klein monodromy and a geometric parity that endows the spectrum with an effective matter parity. A dedicated and systematic study on R-Parity violating couplings in F-Theory is also presented, where we find these couplings to be generic, and we compute their magnitudes.
