Description

We analyse type IIA Calabi-Yau orientifolds with background fluxes and D6-branes. Rewriting the F-term scalar potential as a bilinear in flux-axion polynomials yields a more efficient description of the Landscape of flux vacua, allowing for a systematic search of vacua. We classify families of N= 0 Minkowski, N = 1 AdS and N = 0 AdS flux vacua, extending previous findings in the literature to the Calabi-Yau context. We compute the spectrum of flux-induced masses and show that all these vacua are perturbatively stable. Finally, we extend this Landscape to the open string sector by including D6-branes.
