      The picture on the cover page in 2012 shows a supernova of type Ia. The precise measurements of such massive star eruptions led the three astrophysicists Saul Perlmutter, Brian P. Schmitt and Adam Riess to the conclusion that the universe is nowadays expanding faster than expected. For this discovery the three physicists were honored by the Nobel Prize of the year 2011.

    3. Toric bases for 6D F-theory models (pages 1187–1216)

      D.R. Morrison and W. Taylor

      Article first published online: 22 MAY 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/prop.201200086

      All smooth toric bases that support elliptically fibered Calabi-Yau threefolds are found, using the intersection structure of the irreducible effective divisors on the base. For each base an explicit Weierstrass parameterization can be determined in terms of the toric data. The toric counting of parameters matches with the gravitational anomaly constraint on massless fields. For bases associated with theories having a large number of tensor multiplets, there is a large non-Higgsable gauge group containing multiple irreducible gauge group factors.

    4. Bianchi identities for non-geometric fluxes from quasi-Poisson structures to Courant algebroids (pages 1217–1228)

      R. Blumenhagen, A. Deser, E. Plauschinn and F. Rennecke

      Article first published online: 1 JUN 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/prop.201200099

      Starting from a (non-associative) quasi-Poisson structure, the derivation of a Roytenberg-type algebra is presented. From the Jacobi identities of the latter, the most general form of Bianchi identities for fluxes (H, f, Q, R) is then derived. It is also explained how this approach is related to the mathematical theory of quasi-Lie and Courant algebroids.
