271. On finiteness of type IIB compactificationsMirjam Cvetič, James Halverson, Denis Klevers, Peng Song, 2014, izvirni znanstveni članek Opis: The string landscape satisfies interesting finiteness properties imposed by supersymmetry and stringtheoretical consistency conditions. We study N = 1 supersymmetric compactifications of Type IIB string theory on smooth elliptically fibered CalabiYau threefolds at large volume with magnetized D9branes and D5branes. We prove that supersymmetry and tadpole cancellation conditions imply that there is a finite number of such configurations. In particular, we derive an explicitly computable bound on the number of magnetic flux quanta, as well as the number of D5branes, which is independent of the continuous moduli of the setup. The proof applies if a number of easy to check geometric conditions of the twofold base are met. We show that these geometric conditions are satisfied for the almost Fano twofold bases given by each toric variety associated to a reflexive twodimensional polytope as well as by the generic del Pezzo surfaces dP(n) with n = 0, ..., 8. Physically, this finiteness proof shows that there exist a finite collection of fourdimensional gauge groups and chiral matter spectra in the 4D supergravity theories realized by these compactifications. As a byproduct we explicitly construct all generators of the Kaahler cones of dP(n) and work out their relation to representation theory.

272. Origin of Abelian gauge symmetries in heterotic/Ftheory dualityMirjam Cvetič, Antonella Grassi, Denis Klevers, Peng Song, Maximilian Poretschkin, 2016, izvirni znanstveni članek Opis: We study aspects of heterotic/Ftheory duality for compactifications with Abelian gauge symmetries. We consider Ftheory on general CalabiYau manifolds with a rank one MordellWeil group of rational sections. By rigorously performing the stable degeneration limit in a class of toric models, we derive both the CalabiYau geometry as well as the spectral cover describing the vector bundle in the heterotic dual theory. We carefully investigate the spectral cover employing the group law on the elliptic curve in the heterotic theory. We find in explicit examples that there are three different classes of heterotic duals that have U(1) factors in their low energy effective theories: split spectral covers describing bundles with S(U(m) x U(1)) structure group, spectral covers containing torsional sections that seem to give rise to bundles with SU(m) X Z(k) structure group and bundles with purely nonAbelian structure groups having a centralizer in E8 containing a U(1) factor. In the former two cases, it is required that the elliptic fibration on the heterotic side has a nontrivial MordellWeil group. While the number of geometrically massless U(1)'s is determined entirely by geometry on the Ftheory side, on the heterotic side the correct number of U(1)'s is found by taking into account a Stiickelberg mechanism in the lowerdimensional effective theory. In geometry, this corresponds to the condition that sections in the two half K3 surfaces that arise in the stable degeneration limit of Ftheory can be glued together globally.

273. Threefamily particle physics models from global Ftheory compactificationsMirjam Cvetič, Denis Klevers, Damian Kaloni Mayorga Pena, Paul Oehlmann, Jonas Reuter, 2015, izvirni znanstveni članek Opis: We construct fourdimensional, globally consistent Ftheory models with three chiral generations, whose gauge group and matter representations coincide with those of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model, the PatiSalam Model and the Trinification Model. These models result from compactification on toric hypersurface fibrations X with the choice of base P3. We observe that the Ftheory conditions on the G(4)flux restrict the number of families to be at least three. We comment on the phenomenology of the models, and for PatiSalam and Trinification models discuss the Higgsing to the Standard Model. A central point of this work is the construction of globally consistent G(4)flux. For this purpose we compute the vertical cohomology HV((2,2)) (X) in each case and solve the conditions imposed by matching the M and Ftheoretical 3D ChernSimons terms. We explicitly check that the expressions found for the G(4)flux allow for a cancellation of D3brane tadpoles. We also use the integrality of 3D ChernSimons terms to ensure that our G(4)flux solutions are adequately quantized.

274. Vacuum polarization of STU black holes and their subtracted geometry limitMirjam Cvetič, G. W. Gibbons, Zain H. Saleem, Alejandro Satz, 2015, izvirni znanstveni članek Opis: We study the vacuum polarization of a massless minimally coupled scalar field at the horizon of fourcharge STU black holes. We compare the results for the standard asymptotically flat black holes and for the black holes obtained in the "subtracted limit", both in the general static case and at the horizon pole for the general rotating case. The original and the subtracted results are identical only in the BPS limit, and have opposite sign in the extremal Kerr limit. We also compute the vacuum polarization on the static solutions that interpolate between both the original and the subtracted case through a solutiongenerating transformation and show that the vacuum polarization stays positive throughout the interpolating solution. In the appendix we provide a closedform solution for the Green's function on general (static or rotating) subtracted black hole geometries.

275. Wave equation for the Wu black holeTolga Birkandan, Mirjam Cvetič, 2014, izvirni znanstveni članek Opis: Wu black hole is the most general solution of maximally supersymmetric gauged supergravity in D=5, containing U(1)(3) gauge symmetry. We study the separability of the massless KleinGordon equation and probe its singularities for a general stationary, axisymmetric metric with orthogonal transitivity, and apply the results to the Wu black hole solution. We start with the zero azimuthalangle eigenvalues in the scalar field Ansatz and find that the residuum of a pole in the radial equation is associated with the surface gravity calculated at this horizon. We then generalize our calculations to nonzero azimuthal eigenvalues and probing each horizon singularity, we show that the residua of the singularities for each horizon are in general associated with a specific combination of the surface gravity and the angular velocities at the associated horizon. It turns out that for the Wu black hole both the radial and angular equations are general Heun's equations with four regular singularities.

276. Coevolution of teaching activity promotes cooperationAttila Szolnoki, Matjaž Perc, 2008, izvirni znanstveni članek Opis: Evolutionary games are studied where the teaching activity of players can evolve in time. Initially all players following either the cooperative or defecting strategy are distributed on a square lattice. The rate of strategy adoption is determined by the payoff difference and a teaching activity characterizing the donor's capability to enforce its strategy on the opponent. Each successful strategy adoption process is accompanied by an increase in the donor's teaching activity. By applying an optimum value of the increment, this simple mechanism spontaneously creates relevant inhomogeneities in the teaching activities that support the maintenance of cooperation for both the prisoner's dilemma and the snowdrift game.

277. Competition of tolerant strategies in the spatial public goods gameAttila Szolnoki, Matjaž Perc, 2016, izvirni znanstveni članek Opis: Tolerance implies enduring trying circumstances with a fair and objective attitude. To determine whether evolutionary advantages might be stemming from diverse levels of tolerance in a population, we study a spatial public goods game, where in addition to cooperators, defectors, and loners, tolerant players are also present. Depending on the number of defectors within a group, a tolerant player can either cooperate in or abstain from a particular instance of the game.Weshow that the diversity of tolerance can give rise to synergistic effects, wherein players with a different threshold in terms of the tolerated number of defectors in a group compete most effectively against defection and default abstinence. Such synergistic associations can stabilise states of full cooperation where otherwise defection would dominate.Weobserve complex pattern formation that gives rise to an intricate phase diagram, where invisible yet stable strategy alliances require outmost care lest they are overlooked. Our results highlight the delicate importance of diversity and tolerance for the provisioning of public goods, and they reveal fascinating subtleties of the spatiotemporal dynamics that is due to the competition of subsystem solutions in structured populations.

278. Emergence of multilevel selection in the prisoner's dilemma game on coevolving random networksAttila Szolnoki, Matjaž Perc, 2009, izvirni znanstveni članek Opis: We study the evolution of cooperation in the prisoner's dilemma game, whereby a coevolutionary rule is introduced that molds the random topology of the interaction network in two ways. First, existing links are deleted whenever a player adopts a new strategy or its degree exceeds a threshold value; second, new links are added randomly after a given number of game iterations. These coevolutionary processes correspond to the generic formation of new links and deletion of existing links that, especially in human societies, appear frequently as a consequence of ongoing socialization, change of lifestyle or death. Due to the counteraction of deletions and additions of links the initial heterogeneity of the interaction network is qualitatively preserved, and thus cannot be held responsible for the observed promotion of cooperation. Indeed, the coevolutionary rule evokes the spontaneous emergence of a powerful multilevel selection mechanism, which despite the sustained random topology of the evolving network, maintains cooperation across the whole span of defection temptation values.

279. Evolution of cooperation on scalefree networks subject to error and attackMatjaž Perc, 2009, izvirni znanstveni članek Opis: We study the evolution of cooperation in the prisoner's dilemma and the snowdrift game on scalefree networks that are subjected to intentional and random removal of vertices. We show that, irrespective of the game type, cooperation on scalefree networks is extremely robust against random deletionof vertices, but declines quickly if vertices with the maximal degree are targeted. In particular, attack tolerance is lowest if the temptation to defect is largest, whereby a small fraction of removed vertices suffices to decimate cooperators. The decline of cooperation can be directly linked to the decrease of heterogeneity of scalefree networks that sets in due to the removal of high degree vertices. We conclude that the evolution of cooperation is characterized by similar attack and error tolerance as was previously reported for information readiness and spread of viruses on scalefree networks.

280. Premature seizure of traffic flow due to the introduction of evolutionary gamesMatjaž Perc, 2007, izvirni znanstveni članek Opis: We study the impact of evolutionary games on the flow of traffic. Since traffic participants do not always conform to the imposed rules, the introduction of games, i.e. set of strategies defining the behavioural pattern of agents on the road, appears justified. With this motivation, and the fact that individuals can change their strategy in the course of time, the evolutionary prisoner's dilemma game is introduced between neighbouring agents, enabling them to choose between cooperation and defection. Mutual cooperation enables forwarding to both agents for one step, while the defector is able to advance two steps when facing a cooperator, whereby the latter is forced to go one step backwards. Two defectors end up in a halt until the next iteration. Irrespective of their strategy, however, agents can move only if the road ahead is free. Jumps are never allowed. We show that this simple and plausible supplementation of the discrete cellular automaton BihamMiddletonLevine (BML) model induces a traffic flow seizure by a substantially lower initial density of cars as in the absence of evolutionary games. The phenomenon is explained by studying the onedimensional variant of the BML model with different advancement steps on the circular ring. In view of the proposed explanation, findings are generalized also to other types of games, such is the snowdrift game, and some statistical properties of gridlock formation in the presence of evolutionary rules are outlined. Our findings suggest that 'bending the law' results in a premature occurrence of traffic jams and thus unnecessarily burdens the transportation system.
