Matter from geometry
Abstract
We provide a local geometric description of how charged matter arises in type IIA, Mtheory, of Ftheory compactifications on CalabiYau manifolds. The basic idea is to deform a higher singularity into a lower one through Cartan deformations which vary over space. The results agree with expectations based on string dualities.
