Abstract
F-theory is a non-perturbative formulation of type IIB superstring theory which allows for the decoupling of gravity and for the formulation of GUT theories based on the gauge group E6. In this paper we explore F-theory models in which the low energy supersymmetric theory contains the particle content of three 27 dimensional representations of the underlying E6 gauge group, plus two extra right-handed neutrinos predicted from F and D flatness. The resulting TeV scale effective theory resembles either the E6SSM or the NMSSM+, depending on whether an additional Abelian gauge group does or does not survive. However there are novel features compared to both these mo...
