High U(1) charges in type IIB models and their F-theory lift Mayorga-Peña, Damián


We construct models with U(1) gauge group and matter with charges up to 6, in the context of type IIB compactifications. We show explicitly that models with charges up to 4 can be derived from corresponding models in F-theory by applying the Sen weak coupling limit. We derive which type IIB models should be the limit of charge 5 and 6 F-theory models. Explicit six dimensional type IIB models with maximal charge 5 and 6 are constructed on an algebraic K3 surface that is the double cover of $\mathbb{CP}^2$. By using type IIB results we are also able to rediscover the F-theory charge 4 model in a straightforward way
