6D F-theory models and elliptically fibered Calabi-Yau threefolds over semi-toric base surfaces

We carry out a systematic study of a class of 6D F-theory models and associated Calabi-Yau threefolds that are constructed using base surfaces with a generalization of toric structure. In particular, we determine all smooth surfaces with a structure invariant under a single C[superscript ∗] action (...
