In this paper, we apply Borcea-Voisin's construction and give new examples of fourfolds containing a del Pezzo surface of degree six, which admit an elliptic fibration on a smooth threefold. Some of these fourfolds are Calabi-Yau varieties, which are relevant for the N=1 compactification of Type IIB string theory known as F-theory. As a by-product, we provide a new example of a Calabi-Yau threefold with Hodge numbers h1,1=h2,1=10.

Abstract

In this paper, we apply Borcea-Voisin's construction and give new examples of fourfolds containing a del Pezzo surface of degree six, which admit an elliptic fibration on a smooth threefold. Some of these fourfolds are Calabi-Yau varieties, which are relevant for the N=1 compactification of Type IIB string theory known as F-theory. As a by-product, we provide a new example of a Calabi-Yau threefold with Hodge numbers h1,1=h2,1=10.
