ℙ[superscript 1] -bundle bases and the prevalence of non-Higgsable structure in 4D F-theory models

We explore a large class of F-theory compactifications to four dimensions. We find evidence that gauge groups that cannot be Higgsed without breaking supersymmetry, often accompanied by associated matter fields, are a ubiquitous feature in the landscape of N=1 4D F-theory constructions. In particula...
