Comments on Non-Supersymmetric Type I Vacua

  • K. Förger
Part of the NATO Science Series book series (ASIC, volume 564)


We review open descendants of non-supersymmetric type IIB asymmetric orbifolds with zero cosmological constant. We find that supersymmetry remains unbroken on the branes at all mass levels, whereas it is broken in the bulk.
