Stability of vector bundles from F-theoryApr 15 1999We use a recently proposed formulation of stable holomorphic vector bundles $V$ on elliptically fibered Calabi--Yau n-fold $Z_n$ in terms of toric geometry to describe stability conditions on $V$. Using the toric map $f: W_{n+1} \to (V,Z_n)$ that identifies ... More
