#### HET Seminar | Mirjam Cvetic, University of Pennsylvania | “Continuous and Discrete Gauge Symmetries in F-Theory”

We present recent developments in F-theory compactifications and focus on advances in constructions of globally consistent F-theory compactifications with Abelian and discrete gauge symmetries, emphasizing technical advances and insights into higher-rank gauge symmetries. We also present recent studies of the origin of Abelian and discrete symmetries in Heterotic/F-theory duality. Furthermore, a new construction of Type IIB compactification with non-Abelian discrete gauge symmetry is highlighted.
