Description

We present a scheme of tree-level string moduli stabilization via geometric and non-geometric fluxes that is motivated by realizing recent ideas on F-term axion monodromy inflation. We find a set of non-supersymmetric vacua that show a specific scaling type behavior allowing for gaining parametric control over the various mass scales. Generic features and limitations of this approach are highlighted, as well.
